Project Description

Borders and Walls

The Gulf Cone Building in the Cedars neighborhood of Dallas, TX serves as the backdrop for a projection mapped animation entitled Borders and Walls. The work directly confronts the immigration crisis on the Texas border and the forced incarceration of families and children. It combines projected video and the sound of migrant voices.

Borders and Walls was presented as a part of “Built Environments” curated by MAC Gallery and the Cedars Union, a one-night-only outdoor new media exhibition including three Dallas-based artists: Julie Libersat, Kim Cadmus Owens, and Andrew Scott. The event expanded the reach of the Aurora “Future Worlds” event.
