Crooked American Boarders: The Beaner Express
mixed media installation

This project was an attempt to create a 3-dimensional space dealing with the notion of "primitivism"; relative to persons of undocumented status in the United States. The nearby Union Pacific train activated the lights of the installation via a motion-sensor. The narrative for the exhibit is as follows: A train transports beastly stowaways into a border town.
