Against a (Virtual) Wall

My current research, Against a (Virtual) Wall: Surveillance and Futurity in the US Mexico Borderlands, builds upon significant field expertise facilitating co-creative audiovisual research with diverse communities. Employing filmmaking, photography, and poetry, I position the Sonoran Desert as a dynamic region from which to study viable futures during times of mass migration and detention. Funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF), the project is part of a part of the transnational project, Big Data Lives Anthropological Perspectives on Tech Imaginaries and Human Transformations, directed by Michaela Schäuble at the Institute of Social Anthropology, University of Bern.
