“The Divided Americas” are series of subterranean chambers that showcase historical ruins of our Western Hemisphere. Its story, "Ollin's Curse,” is inspired by the injustices and calamities happening at the US-Mexico border. This story brings together the myth of the Chupacabra to tell a haunting tale of the legacy of colonialism and how this legacy reconfigures itself in the present through racist projects such as the construction of the border wall. It stitches together non-fiction and fiction to produce a narrative that allows us to revisit the origins of the US-Mexico border to imagine a world beyond borders.
