Artists find their unique expressions to comment on political tussles around them and the latest one to join the band is Bosco Sodi, whose first public installation in New York is set to rise and fall at Washington Square Park on September 4.

The artist will raise a six feet high and 26 feet long wall, made from 1,600 clay timbers fired in Oaxaca, Mexico, writes The New York Times.

At around midday, the visitors - of any nationality - will take apart the installation, taking home a clay timber, a gesture that responds to the divisive politics that has gained traction in the U.S. over the past few months, notes Tech News Base.
