The Imaginary Line
In an act of solidarity, a team from Mexico and a team from the U.S.A assembled with the sole purpose of establishing a slackline that crossed the border between them. 'In a world that is constantly tearing us apart, we came together to cross those imaginary lines and tell a different story. Hoping to create an example of people from different lands coming together in a time of conflict, to say, that despite where you may come from, we are all humans here.'
