text:
A poetic ambition of the social housing company Alcéane who, accompanied by the festivals Une Saison Graphique and Le Goût des Autres, used 22 gables of buildings in Le Havre to color them with literature.

Richard Niessen worked with writer Marie Nimier, who came up with the text: "Étant donné un mur, que se passed-t-il deviant?" (Given a wall, what is happening in front?), with a phone number to reply. That's where the design of the notes come from.
