Borders Visualized

BY KERRY DOYLE
@ VOL 11 ON OCT 10, 2015

“The border is a very difficult place to describe. Anything I say about it, I'll also say the exact opposite about it.”

In Borders Visualized from PechaKucha Night El Paso’s 11th Volume, speaker Kerry Doyle presents the mission of the Rubin Center for Visual Arts at UTEP with a selection of work from exhibitions over the first 10 years.  Borders are meant to divide. As border tensions rise, artists –both performance and visual– have been creating works to represent the relationship between the bordering cities of El Paso and Ciudad Juarez. The Rubin Center now has a decade’s worth of stories to show and tell.

The HyBridge Project

BY FERNANDO TREJO
@ VOL 12 ON FEB 25, 2016

The Hybridge project is a theoretical binational, urban intervention proposed by FERNANDO TREJO for the El Paso \ Juarez Borderplex. The name is a linguistic bridge between the words “Hydrid” and “Bridge”. The project is a hybrid between a civic space (for the proposed Binational Environmental Protection Agency), international border crossing station, public park, and pedestrian bridge.

The apex of the bridge building serves as the physical and metaphorical middle ground that hosts for the proposed Binational EPA headquarters.

As a border crossing station, the Hybridge provides space for security check points on both ends as well as all the necessary requirements for such an operation: office space, holding cells, labs, and beaurocratic service spaces.

The public park segment of the project is an urban neutral zone but unlike the Cordova Island of the early 1900’s this area will serve as a space for unity.

The parks’ extended arm, floats over the Plaza de la Mexicanidad to serve as an auxiliary viewing platform of both La “X” and the amphitheater.

And as a pedestrian bridge over the border, the project attaches it self to a larger urban matrix of bus lines and bike paths. The ends of the parks allow for automobile parking and pick-up zones for pedestrians.

Travel Pakistan: one country, infinite landscapes

Article by Ayesha Fazlur Rahman, Programme Manager Kuch Khaas - The Centre for Arts, Culture and Dialogue  Travel for leisure is great; make a checklist, get your torch , snack bars and meds supply and off you go. But what about finding the travel companions? I learnt the perfect solution to that  problem one afternoon in Boston when I wanted to attend a Rumi event at the unfamiliar MIT campus. I asked not one, not 7, but 11 of my university buddies! “Sounds great, but I am busy today” was  the response , worded differently. I looked up the place on the map, got me on the bus on a cold winter evening and went alone. It worked out just fine. I also got to eat free baklava! Since then, this has been my travel plan: I go from point A to point B, I ask several potential travel partners and if nothing works out I book a tour with a tour operator and go with a group of complete strangers! The result? I have been on several trips with several travel buddies and at times even alone. Chitral, KP Province  I went to Chitral for the Kalash Spring Festival with Humaira whom I had met at a hike on the Margallah Hills, Islamabad. She was trigger happy when it came to taking pictures, which meant I got lots of pictures taken too! We were part of a travel group and got to chat with several of the other travellers: the American woman who wanted to interview all the locals and wouldn’t give a straight answer about her nature of work in Pakistan, the Dutchman who spoke the most formal version of Urdu ever spoken since 1947! The Pakistani lady doctor who one day, at the breakfast table, demanded to know why the Norwegian couple, married for 7 years, had not been able to produce an offspring thus far! During the  jeep rides across the Rumbur and Bumburet valleys, most people, other than couples, hopped on to the jeeps close at hand instead of clinging to the friends they had come with. (Internet image for Chitral) Deosai National Park, Gilgit Baltistan At an average elevation of 4114 meters , the Deosai National Park in Skardu is the second highest plateau in the world. Traveling through valleys and narrow roads, you suddenly are struck by the sheer expanse around you as you approach Deosai, literally meaning the Land of Giants. It’s a treeless plain , covered with grass and tiny pink flowers that give it a pink hue. Travel, they say, is about facing your demons and slaying them etc: for some its the fear of heights, of losing  cellphone connectivity, of getting in an accident. My fear was not having hot running water: that got sorted every morning when my still half-closed eyes were greeted with a splash of water from an ice cold mountain spring, near our camping site! What better way to prepare for a 5km not-so-steep hike to search for the Holy Grail of Deosai, the  brown bear. The day we embarked on our search, the wind announced our arrival to the bears who thought it best to take cover, away from our prying eyes and cameras. May be another day, another trip the winds will be on our side. Cholistan Desert, Multan, Bahawalpur (Punjab Province) South Punjab is also a popular tourist destination that hosts both jeep rally enthusiasts and campers in the Cholistan Desert; heritage lovers and devotees visit the beautiful shrines in Multan and Uch Sharif . To escape the relentless heat here, tours are planned in the winter months. My travel companion on this trip, Najia,  took me to an unknown destination too: the childhood world of fits of uncontrollable laughter, that had somehow not been possible since school ended. The freedom that comes with anonymity made us unbelievably foolhardy as we merrily wandered to forbidden parts of the Panjnad Headworks in Bahawalpur! I made a lasting friendship with an elderly German couple; Najia offered me up for adoption to them! Mr Manfred took a prize winning photo of us at the Lal Suhanra Park in Bahawalpur, blackbucks enjoying the misty morning along with us. Hunza and Khunjrab Pass , Gilgit Baltistan Hunza and the Khunjrab Pass (Pak-China Border) were next on my list. This time I roped in a friend of a friend’s son, whom I had met at his wedding, to travel with me. She agreed! Michelle turned out to be someone who liked to observe people and scan their conversations for deducing their personality traits; thus there was always interesting analyses of events and interactions happening around us! So this trip we talked to people and also a lot about them! The Hunza residents are known for longevity and good health, attributed mainly to the Hunza water and diet of honey and nuts. They look lean and fit too. At an elevation of 4693 metres, the Khunjerab Pass is the highest paved international border crossing in the world. Fairy Meadows , Gilgit Baltistan This is a valley with a breathtaking view of Nanga Parbat The Killer Mountain. Fittingly, the 10 km road that leads from Raikot Sirai to Fairy Meadows is rated among the top 12 most dangerous roads in the world. Once there, a 6 hour mountain trek takes you to the Fairy Meadows camping site, at an altitude of 3300 metres. This trip is not for the fainthearted so I wanted to do it while I still had age on my side; no travel partner, no problem: I went alone with a bus full of strangers. Nope, didn’t make any lasting or even temporary friendships this time, the sole of my hiking boots gave way at the first step of the 6km hike. The ghoray wallah offered to trade shoes with me for the duration of the hike, at the end of which a Nepalese med student from Lahore gave me an extra pair that he had. See, it worked out just fine. We think we need friends more than we actually do. Believe me when I say the following about the view of the Nanga Parbat: It’s alive, with a personality, with changing moods; mostly unsmiling but generously giving from its treasure trove of beauty a few coins for the lonely traveller to carry home. Sardaryab (KP Province) , Pir Chinasi (AJK) Sometimes travel for work can turn into a bit of sight seeing too. My colleagues Fauzia, Samreen and Rahmat in Peshawar took me to Sardaryab ( the head of the river) in Charsadda. We picked chapli kebabs along the way and ordered fish there, what a treat! What a serene little spot! After a training workshop for textbook developers in Muzaffarabad, the capital of Azad Jammu &Kashmir (AJK), we went up a spiralling road to Pir Chinasi. At an elevation of 2900 meters, this hill top gives a pretty view of the city and surrounding rural areas.
