About the installation
Three interactive stations on each side of the border control powerful searchlight beams using a small dial wheel. When lights from any two stations are directed at each other, microphones and speakers automatically switch-on to allow participants to talk with one another, creating cross-border conversations.

The project was curated by Kerry Doyle and León de la Rosa, with programming direction by Edgar Picazo.
