    Since 1978, Wall has been making Transparencies, large photographs (2 m x 3 m) shown inside luminous boxes. His favourite subjects are marginal ones (Milk, 1984 ; Abundance, 1985 ; The Thinker, 1986) and scenes of social and racial conflicts (Mimic, 1982 ; No, 1983). The artist made a series of panoramic landscapes in which the geography of the places depended on their cultural and economic context (The Jewish Cemetery – The Bridge, 1980). In 1989, he teamed up with D. Graham to make the Children’s Pavilion, whose circular outline recalls a smaller-scale Roman Pantheon.
