What is the culture. How culture is made. Is the culture made by state, religious, language, family, or education? 


There is a radio at either ends of the vide installation, audience will be able to allow to hear the moment in both specific areas where are at Tijuana, Mexico and at San Diego, USA. As irrespective of national borders might be observed when we catch the signal from the radio. This work is to pose the question how do we make boundary between you and I.

“Oh, East is East, and West is West, and never the two shall meet, 
Till Earth and Sky stand presently at God’s great Judgment Seat; 
But there is neither East nor West, Border, nor Breed, nor Birth,
When two strong men stand face to face, tho’ they come from the ends of the earth.”


ーRudyard Kipling

“おお、東は東、西は西、そして両者はけっして会うことがないだろう、大地と空がやがて神の偉大な審判の座に立つまでも。しかし東もなければ西もない、国境も、種族も、素性もない、二人の強い男が面と向かって立つときは、両者が地球の両端から来たとしても”

 

―ラドヤード・キプリング
