Borderwalls are a blight on the landcape and anything that can improve their look is more than welcome when just tearing them down is not an option.
The Teeter Totter Wall project by Rael San Fratello and the Colectivo Chopeke was a wonderful temporary project to subvert the physical and political ugliness of a border wall.
The installation was a resounding success and made global headlines. This success was cemented with the awarding of a design of the year prize from The Design Museum.
Let’s hope the downs of this border wall will be replaced by the ups of a more inclusive society.
