Pink Seesaws Installed at Border Fence Favorite 


Jul 30 2019


United States, Mexico

Pink seesaws were installed along the United States/Mexico border. The project, created by two professors sought to unite both sides of the fence by creating an activity that required a participant on either side. The seesaws were installed so there is one seat in El Paso, Texas and one in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico with the border fence acting as the fulcrum. One of the artists stated that the purpose of the installation was to create “meaningful ways on both sides with the recognition that the actions that take place on one side have a direct consequence on the other side.”
