The Marks on the Wall: Imprisonment deals with wrongful imprisonment, solitary confinement and the mental prison the wrongfully convicted face. In a virtually defined prison, a woman feels the initial shock and then growing horror in reaction to her wrongful imprisonment. The prison is virtual; black tape delineates the confines of the cell. The woman is naked, symbolic of her physical and emotional vulnerability within the confines of her prison cell. She exists in a barren space, her only comfort a bed, a sheet and a small rock she has hidden. The rock is symbolic of the many prisons throughout the world where people have marked time with scratchings on the wall. The woman does not know how long she will be there. In the beginning she believes she will be let free any moment. Then time passes. She explores the limits of her world. She paces like a wild animal. She pulls at her hair. She contemplates, paces, sleeps, wakes and starts all over again. Her pain and desperation is visible in her body, in her movements. She begins to scratch into the wall, to take control of time, to document and give meaning to her existence each day, one day at a time. She dreams, she wakes, she scratches. One day, after 1447 days of prison, she will finally be free, but we do not know what she will then face.
