Project Statement:
In the video Frontier Technologies, the concept of a borderless future is explored through autoethnography. With artistic labor, the border landscape is built, followed by a break to observe the blimps watching the border and concluding with the folding of the border wall. The chroma key on a green tarp and copy paper allows for the visualization of a future with no boundaries and highlights the endangered species affected by the construction of the border wall. The green of the chroma key is resourceful, as it enables any object to be anything. In light of the growing tension at the border, it is essential to expose the aggressive infrastructure that surveils La Frontera and to consider the consequences of the complex history between Mexico and The United States.
