In 2012, together with Amnesty International and the Leo Burnett Agency, Dan created the exhibition WAILING WALLS in Frankfurt, Germany. It was a campaign about the injustices against people imprisoned for their political views. The hands in the photo represent actual prisoner's hands.
The Amadou (Two Hands) "grate" graphic is backed by 1/8" thick plastic that lifts the art piece off the wall giving it a 3-D quality. 4 self-adhesive, removable 3M mounting squares are included for installation.
