WE ARE WALLED is a video installation about “the Great Firewall”. In China, there is a surveillance apparatus that is called “the Great Firewall”, which blocks internet access and controls internet traffic. WE ARE WALLED explores the influence of this “wall” on Chinese people who have experienced living inside of it and outside of it.
