Sacha Kagan's border work

Along with yellow police tape (printed in the USA with the text "THIS IS NOT A NATURAL BORDER"), and flyers asking people to question their relationship to borders, strung along the street, these 'wet" signs indicate danger. This work, installed in the midst of an immigrant neighborhood makes a relationship between immigration, global warming and psychological impact. Far from the crowds of middle class protestors, the efforts towards engagement between passersby and Sacha's modest team, as flyers are offered explaining the work, highlights one more border between peoples of the world and one more opportunity to disregard borders and connect.
