Incident at Aisle Four

Written by: Emeka Nweze
The argument for intellectual property is a slippery one, what with the chilling reality of colors being trademarked and patents being granted for living organisms. Nevertheless, the author humbly requests that credit and proper citation be given if this work is ever referenced.
Baroque, allegorical and despite oblique allusions, this work is fictitious.
It is a cold evening. The absence of leaves on trees and the diminished visibility due to a heavy blizzard gives away the season and hints at the climate zone. A large convenient store sits in a suburban neighborhood.
The automated sliding doors are wide open due to a seemingly relentless stream of holiday consumers frantically trying to obtain the gifts that quantify…


Visit to Israel & Palestine

I visited Israel and Palestine in 2007, and was amazed at the number of walls and check points that people have to travel through in their day-to-day lives.
Not everyone is allowed through, and the crossing of the lines marked out by the walls is very symbolic. Some people view areas as their land, others as historically belonging to their own people.

The walls around Bethlehem, graffitied by Banksy and others with the contrasting motifs of masked bombers and donkeys, made a real impact on me. A place of peace is in the midst of a war.

Mexico- migrant's stories ...

Around the globe, walls spring up to divide neighbors

Alrededor del mundo aparecen paredes para dividir vecinos
Por Bernd Debusmann, corresponsal especial
TIJUANA, Mexico, April 30 (Reuters) - What do Tijuana, Baghdad and Jerusalem have in common?
TIJUANA, México, 30 de abril (Reuters) - ¿Qué tienen en común Tijuana, Bagdad y Jerusalén?
They all have walls that divide neighbors, cause controversy and form part of an array of physical barriers around the world that dwarf the late, unlamented Iron Curtain.
Todas ellas tienen muros que dividen barrios, causan controversia y forman parte de una serie de barreras físicas en todo el mundo que hacen que la antigua y no lamentada Cortina de Hierro parezca pequeña.
There are walls, fences, trenches and berms. Some are reinforced by motion detectors, heat-sensing…


Something there is that doesn't love a wall ...

I’d like to make a film for this too….
beckycoley@hotmail.com ... Reminded me of a poem I studied at school by Robert frost -

Something there is that doesn’t love a wall,
That sends the frozen-ground-swell under it,
And spills the upper boulders in the sun;
And makes gaps even two can pass abreast.
The work of hunters is another thing:
I have come after them and made repair
Where they have left not one stone on a stone,
But they would have the rabbit out of hiding,
To please the yelping dogs. The gaps I mean,
No one has seen them made or heard them made,
But at spring mending-time we find them there.
I let my neighbour know…


Mexico - Transborder Immigrant Tool

FOLLOW THE GPS, ÉSE:THE TRANSBORDER IMMIGRANT TOOL HELPS MEXICANS CROSS OVER SAFELY
http://www.viceland.com/int/v16n11/htdocs/follow-the-gps-225.php
Vice magazine wrote a long article this month about Ricardo Dominguez and the b.a.n.g. lab. The article covers numerous Border Disturbance Art projects but focuses on the Transborder Immigrant Tool. We’ve been getting a lot of good feedback from this article, so thanks! It is really fantastic to see your film and we at bang.lab will work to see if we can bring to our community.
Best,

The walls of Shame

Hi,
We are two french director and have recently finished a 52’ documentary called “The walls of Shame”.
The fall of the Berlin Wall gave us hope for the end of divisions. However, 20 years later, many walls, be it of concrete, metal or wire, have been erected thoughout the world. In the U.S.A., in Israel, in Europe, and in many other parts of the world. The aim of these new walls is not to prevent people from going out, like in Berlin, but to prevent them from coming in. In our so-called global world, these walls are for us the evidence of a global crisis.
In Mexico, in Israel, in Berlin, we met those who live near these walls,…
