Local Reality Test: Wall Test, performed at 16 Beaver Street, New York, NY, 2002, poster designed 2003

In this second incarnation of the Wall Test, Chris attempted to walk through a wall for one minute. He was unsuccessful. The original intent was to try to walk through the wall for eight hours, but the gallery had been broken into and vandalized that morning, and Chris and the gallery owners decided it would be in everyone's best interest if, when the police showed up to investigate, Chris was not constantly smacking into a wall. (An earlier version lasted one hour and was recorded on video.)
