first sketches
Dividing Lines: The Demarcation Line sculpture is a project for a larger installation ( in scale 1:15). It is a deconstruction of the borderline between the United States and Mexico on a scale of 1: 650,000 to the actual border (1954 miles, 3145km). The wall project between the USA and Mexico was an act of discrimination and segregation. Residents of the cities on both sides of the border form the so-called 'third nation' of cross-border citizens (based on a 2016 survey)- their unique bond goes beyond geopolitical boundaries and creates a unique identity / installation 525 x 529 x 426 cm
