Canvas and earth interactive art installation

UNGROUNDED is an interactive art installation that deconstructs the US/Mexico border and replaces it with a playground for neutrality, exploration, and restoration. Within this space, 3 swings sway over different areas of colored gravel to convey the different experiences between a Mexican migrant, a U.S. citizen, and an individual in between. The suspension conveys an ambiguous sense of belonging to both territories, but can not feel grounded to the earth. As more people interact with the swings It calls to unify the landscape as one home.
