The architect represents average houses on each side of the border. While the Mexican plan (at left) contains only necessary rooms, the American house is a sprawling structure. This imbalance shows how the border wall reinforces economic inequality. The fence is drawn joining the homes together, but also bisecting the kitchen table, dividing the only shared element.
This teeter totter is inserted onto the middle bar of the existing border wall. It allows its riders to see over the fence, connecting through leisure populations normally separated by the boundary. The plan is impractical, yet playful, ridiculing the border’s violent division of communities.
