Artist Erases U.S. / Mexico Border

Can you imagine a world without borders? Well, Ana Teresa Fernández, a Mexican artist working in Nogales, México, wants you to stop imagining so she is “erasing” the U.S.- Mexico border.

By “erasing” the wall along the U.S. / Mexico border she wants to give the illusion that “we’re all one humanity under one sky”. If only we all shared the same thought.

“We [painted] it specifically in this space because there’s a street that starts in Mexico and continues in the United States, but there is this barrier that prevents movement across it, ” Fernández says in an interview for AJ+. “So we intend to create the illusion like there is only sky.”

Watch the video above to see the border wall vanish.
