# (UN)WALL /// Sarah Oppenheimer

I already did a post on Sarah Oppenheimer's work (read it here) but I thought it would be relevant to make it reappear for this (UN)WALL theme. This artist considers the wall as a plain monolithic mass and achieve some piercing into it revealing what is supposed to be the internal material composing the wall. She then plays with the visitor's point of view by the various directionality of the piercing she achieves.
This way, the wall that used to be a screen preventing the vision becomes a vision device that makes us look at things in a different way than if the wall did not exist in the first place.
