Border Tuner

Border Tuner is a large-scale, participatory art installation designed to interconnect the cities of El Paso, Texas, and Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua. Powerful searchlights make “bridges of light” that open live sound channels for communication across the US-Mexico border. 

It is comprised of 6 custom made aluminium modules each containing a camera, microphone and speaker for voluntary participants.
