Lyrics

This work built by Taller Yonke (two artists with whom I had collaborated to affix actual instruments to the real border wall in Nogales: Mexico ~ Work Pending) is meant to resemble the border wall in Nogales with giant figures supporting it.

Ironically The Taller Yonke version seems to be better built than the actual wall, so I took to playing the giant figures with soft mallets, developing a “heart-beat” rhythm on the warm sounding steel.
