Artist Wang Youshen did a live performance on the Badaling Great Wall of Beijing in 1993 - he spread newspapers on the whole Great Wall.

“Whether they possess or lack meaning, words manifested through the medium of print fulfill a physiological and psychological function for readers, thereby imprinting society. At the same time, the creator in the print media is increasingly tormented and duplicated by such media.”
