The Stone Wall Stand In is an active billboard, of sorts, that re-represents and reframes the city of Logroño. Like a 1:1 paper cut-out souvenir, the giant drawing vivifies the history and materiality of the Plaza de Revellín. It features a thin leaning wall engraved with the outlines of the stones set within the thick ancient medieval wall behind it in order to unveil a new realm in the city. Slip behind the drawing to discover places to hide, explore, or just to lounge and chat with others. Old and new collide with the real and representational to generate sites of playful opportunities for engagement and a unique perspective on the historic surroundings.
