BORDER STORIES

Border Stories, Working Title, from One Place to Another, 2000

“There is nothing so _______ as that border in the mind” This project, an ‘ambient network’ of short stories, identity graphics and artists projects about life along the border between San Diego and Tijuana, raises questions about what media might be other than television or advertising when it appears unbidden within a cityscape. Designed to function somewhat like the ‘situationist’ notion of a “detournement”, it was sited across several consecutive windows as an invisible border between the new sanitized tourist-friendly downtown and the old seedy port city of San Diego.

4 channel video sound projection. Dimensions and configurations variable.
First exhibited at INsite2000, San Diego/Tijuana, 2000
