I’m interested in exploring the Mexico-US border as a space of violence. Currently, I am conducting research on how the disappearance of migrants along the migrant trail leads their loved ones to dwell in a state of limbo or suspended grief. In this vein, artistic activism and community search and rescue become essential modes for coping and mourning. Such social activism, exercised by community members and families of the disappeared, extends across geopolitical barriers on both the northern side and southern side of the border.
