A set of neon pink seesaws along the US-Mexico border (in Sunland Park and Ciudad Juárez, respectively) have been installed by Ronald Rael and Virginia San Fratello—who work together as Rael San Fratello. The installation—called “Teetertotter Wall”—is playful and powerfully defiant. Rael calls it the “literal fulcrum for the US-Mexico relations” where it’s blindingly clear that “the actions that take place on one side have a direct consequence on the other side.” Rael’s post on Instagram comes just a day after the US Supreme Court approved the use of $2.5 billion in Pentagon funds to build part of the wall on the southern border.
