Hyper modernism

BY HERIBERTO IBARRA
@ VOL 11 ON OCT 10, 2015

Hypermodernism thru the eyes of a binational photographer. Two countries, three states, two cities merged into one persona. Traveling thru countries is an everyday thing when living in a diverse border town full of color, flavor and a distinctive separation; photographing it becomes necessary to capture as much as possible to bring the hypermodernism of ones eye.

Building Bridges, Not Walls at the US - Mexico Border

BY WILLIAM HELM
@ VOL 134 ON MAR 18, 2016

"We hope whoever becomes president builds more bridges instead of walls [because] we are sister cities, divided only by the river."

In Building Bridges, Not Walls at the US - Mexico Border from PKN Tokyo Vol 134, PechaKucha Night El Paso City Organizers (and acclaimed architects) William Helm and Edgar Lopez describe the symbiotic relationship of the sister cities of El Paso and Juarez. The residents of the two cities activate a third space of the US/Mexico border, called "Pass of the North"  which produces a rich milieu of creativity, art and culture. In this place which was historically known as "Paso del Norte" along the Spanish road from Mexico City to Santa Fe, the two cities have come together to use the PechaKucha conversation to bridge across the border. 20 x 20 x 2 cities = building bridges not walls.
