2021 - till no border

Project Statement

In my predominately brown community, the most advanced technology in the world is present. My father is a blue-collar worker employed at United Launch Alliance, where he has been exploited for 33 years in order to launch satellites used by Google Maps and military branches. For my installation, BarbedWire 12.0, I used traditional Mayan Huun paper and a consumer printer to print the technology used at the border. Through screenshots of open-source 3D objects, I created a typology of tech that has an advantage over those crossing the border, and subvert barbed wire as a barrier allowing the viewer to pass between it.
