How can humans relate to our 4 billion year evolutionary history? The wall is an exercise in scale and perspective mapping 3.9 billion years of life on the planet earth onto a 1 kilometer wall. It traces our human lineage through the history of our planet from the first origins of life up through the present. On the wall, two thousand years translates roughly to the width of five human hairs. This means that the history of our species as humans, about 200,000 years, occupies the last 5 cm of the wall.
