A Border peepshow
INTERACTIVE SCULPTURE 2017 SAN DIEGO + LOS ANGELES CA + BERLIN, GERMANY
A Border Peepshow provides four views of the political separation of a culturally and ecologically connected terrain. Drawing on historic and contemporary photographs of the region, each box depicts scenes of San Diego/Tijuana from 1887, 1927, 1967, and 2017.
Design of the Border Peepshows references 18th-century parlor toys and the 19th century cameras that first photographed the SD/TJ border. First shown in San Diego and Los Angeles, the Peepshows now travel to other parts of the world to mark borders of the past and present, including the former East/West Berlin Wall.
“A Border Peepshow” is a collaborative project between Parkeology and The Velaslavasay Panorama. The Velaslavasay Panorama is an exhibition hall, theatre and garden dedicated to the production and illumination of unusual visual experiences, including the 360-degree painted panorama.
