アメリカとメキシコの国境をシーソーでつないだ建築家Ronald RaelさんとVirginia San Fratelloさんの取り組みがTwitterに流れてきました。
Two California professors have seen their vision for a seesaw that allows children from the US and Mexico to play together become reality.
Custom-built seesaws have been installed in Sunland Park, New Mexico, where a slatted border fence separates it from Ciudad Juárez, Mexico. pic.twitter.com/bqeGFj1UIR

Art is such a powerful vehicle for change.
A beautiful installation at our southern border that reminds us that: “Actions that take place on one side have direct consequences on the other.”
We are all connected.
We are all one. 💚pic.twitter.com/NaREd5Vd7z

One of the most incredible experiences of my and @vasfsf’s career bringing to life the conceptual drawings of the Teetertotter Wall from 2009 in an event filled with joy, excitement, and togetherness at the borderwall. The wall became a literal fulcrum for U.S. – Mexico relations and children and adults were connected in meaningful ways on both sides with the recognition that the actions that take place on one side have a direct consequence on the other side. Amazing thanks to everyone who made this event possible like Omar Rios @colectivo.chopeke for collaborating with us, the guys at Taller Herrería in #CiudadJuarez for their fine craftsmanship, @anateresafernandez for encouragement and support, and everyone who showed up on both sides including the beautiful families from Colonia Anapra, and @kerrydoyle2010, @kateggreen , @ersela_kripa , @stphn_mllr , @wakawaffles, @chris_inabox and many others (you know who you are). #raelsanfratello #borderwallasarchitecture
