在美國新墨西哥州的桑蘭公園很特別,因為隔壁就是墨西哥了,中間只有一道邊境牆,在目前川普並不歡迎中美洲移民的政策下,這個漆成友善粉紅色的蹺蹺板想要啟動它,就得要二國的居民一起合作才能享受到樂趣。這是由設計師Rael和Flatero在2009年所設計的作品“Teetertotter Wall”以幽默和創意來詮釋築邊牆是無用的。

Posted @withrepost • @rrael @vasfsf Congratulations to Ronald Rael and Virginia San Fratello for making their Teeter-Totter Wall (2009) a reality, at least for a short while this past weekend on the border between the US and Mexico. We acquired an etching of the conceptual drawings for this piece for MoMA’s permanent collection in 2016. @themuseumofmodernart @seanify22 Writes Ronald Rael in his post: ‘One of the most incredible experiences of my and @vasfsf’s career bringing to life the conceptual drawings of the Teetertotter Wall from 2009 in an event filled with joy, excitement, and togetherness at the borderwall. The wall became a literal fulcrum for U.S. - Mexico relations and children and adults were connected in 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. Amazing thanks to everyone who made this event possible like Omar Rios @colectivo.chopeke for collaborating with us, the guys at Taller Herrería in #CiudadJuarez for their fine craftsmanship, @anateresafernandez for encouragement and support, and everyone who showed up on both sides including the beautiful families from Colonia Anapra, and @kerrydoyle2010, @kateggreen , @ersela_kripa , @stphn_mllr , @wakawaffles, @chris_inabox and many others (you know who you are).’ #raelsanfratello #borderwallasarchitecture
