Roger Waters wrote this song about his views on formal education. He hated his grammar school teachers and felt they were more interested in keeping the kids quiet than teaching them. The wall refers to the wall Waters built around himself because he wasn’t in touch with reality. The bricks in the wall were the events in his life which propelled him to build this proverbial wall around him, and his school teacher was another brick in the wall.
We decided to use beamer projection as our main concept. Lyrics are arranged to create a simple composition by using some spaces as invisible bricks. Text projection on rigid angles of walls and closed doors of class rooms resulted in a forced manipulations and distortions to portray the core message of the song.
