Project Statement: 

Imagining a borderless future, the video Frontier Technologies uses autoethnography to show my relationship to labor and the borderlands. By performing artistic labor, I build the border landscape, take a break to see how blimps watch the border, and finish by folding the border wall. The chroma key on a green tarp and copy paper makes a future with no boundaries visible and allows me to print endangered species affected by the construction of the border wall. Here, the chroma key is resourceful because green enables any object to be anything. With the increasing tension at the border, it is necessary to expose the aggressive infrastructure that voyeurs La Frontera and to examine the effects of a complicated history between Mexico and The United States.
