A LIE is an assertion that is believed to be false, often times used with the purpose of deceiving someone. The practice of communicating lies is called lying, and a person who communicates a lie may be termed a liar.

I believe every politician lies. I do not believe however, that every politician is a liar. I believe that Donald Trump is lying to a magnitude and scale that is s dangerous and deeply damaging, he in fact is a liar.

Question: What if each one of Donald Trump’s lies were printed on a brick? One brick for every verifiable lie told while in office. We would have a wall that’s 10’ high and close to 1000 feet long, that’s like three football fields.

The wall can then be used as a back drop for multimedia art installations, music, writing, poetry and street art, all depicting the impact of those lies. It’s meant to supercede politics and ask the larger questions about morality and truth.

I am currently scouting out locations for this wall in Philadelphia, PA. however am open to other locations.

Ultimately I would like to build this wall of lies and ship it down to the Mexican border where our Southern neighbors can use it for their own protest. Perhaps the wall is built in different sections across the US and there is a final assembly along the border.
