An incredible art event that will promote peace, tolerance and unity at one of the most contentious dividing lines of them all. The USA Mexico border. UK based artists Duncan McKellar and Duncan Martin aim to create a simple yet ground breaking film and series of photographs recording 100 people standing in a perfectly straight line, crossing the USA/Mexican border.
50 Mexicans on one side, 50 Americans on the other, each spaced 10 metres apart. Each mask will cover only the top half of each person’s face. In the strong desert sun these masks will reflect a dazzling sun flash back to a series of video cameras (static and drones).
These flashes will join together to become a single brilliant light burning across the border. A ray of hope.
Everything from beginning to end will be recorded to create the most beautiful film and series of photographs, that will demonstrate to the whole world that when we work together we can do amazing things.
