Nurturing the Border

 

To support Nurturing the Border, a collaborative commuter-sourced woven, knitted and crocheted project with Mexican-Americans living in Mexico who commute to the US on a daily basis while waiting to cross the San Ysidro Border. The work will include a performance, followed by distribution of material and instructional packets for commuters to execute woven/knit/crocheted components during their wait. The collaborative pieces will be amassed into a site-specific installation that grows out of a rented storefront on the Mexican side of the border crossing. The resulting work and documentation will travel to CAFAM for the Design on the Border exhibition.
