The U.S.-Mexico border has been the subject of political conversation for some time now. In July 2019, two artists built it into an art installation: “Teetertotter Wall,” seen in the Instagram post below.

The artists—Ronald Rael, a professor of architecture at the University of California, Berkeley, and Virginia San Fratello, an associate professor of design at San José State University—installed three pink see-saws (aka teetertotters) into a section of the U.S.-Mexico border wall in Sunland Park, New Mexico. As Upworthy writes, the see-saws “extend into both the U.S. and Mexico through the barrier between the two countries. Children and adults on both sides of the border can play together, seesawing up and down, their view of one another partially obscured by the vertical steel slats that separate them.”

Rael’s Instagram post (he’s rrael) sharing the installation has already been liked by more than 215,000 people.
