A Stalker is what people in Arkady and Boris Strugatsky’s Roadside Picnic (1971) call a whole new profession of misfits that risk their lives in the Zone (a mystical place of transcendental powers) to seize valuable things. A Wall Stalker then, is somebody who is taking the same risk to grasp whatever he can find in an equally mysterious Wall.
Wall Stalker is an animated architectural narrative, in which the characters of Andrei Tarkovski’s 1979 film Cталкер (Stalker) (based on Roadside Picnic) become the protagonists of a three man exodus from a city of architectural impostures, in search for the essence of architecture.
Wall Stalker is a graphic journey through the fictional subconscious of architecture. It is the first of a trilogy of architectural narratives of WAI Architecture Think Tank that explore the essence of architecture.
