From the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts and the Blaffer Art Museum:
“After the Mexican-American War (1846-1848), rivers stopped being rivers, becoming water walls. Through the use of sound and the interaction with objects found in different parts of the border, this performative gesture invokes the specters of the borderlands and their human and non-human communities. The artwork questions, troubles, and jolts the narratives that naturalize border territories (desert, rivers, oceans) as infrastructures of the nation-state.
Sound piece in collaboration with Miguel Ángel Frausto Anchondo
