An architect's subversive reimagining of the US-Mexico border wall | Ronald Rael
What is a border?
It's a line on a map, a place where cultures mix and merge in beautiful, sometimes violent and occasionally ridiculous ways.
And a border wall?
An overly simplistic response to that complexity, says architect Ronald Rael.
In a moving, visual talk, Rael reimagines the physical barrier that divides the United States and Mexico -- sharing satirical, serious works of art inspired by the borderlands and showing us the border we don't see in the news.
"There are not two sides defined by a wall.
This is one landscape, divided," Rael says.
