This piece derives from Lover's Rainbow, a collaboration between Pia Camil and architect Mateo Riestra. Set at Desert X, across the U.S./Mexico border (Baja, Mexico and the Coachella Valley, CA), Lover's Rainbow consists of an identical set of rainbows made from painted rebar. Exposed rebar usually signals development, but too often in the Mexican landscape we see those dreams thwarted and abandoned.. Rainbows introduce light into current immigration policies, prompting viewers to see things from two perspectives. Those who cross the border get the full experience, a trek in search of the rainbow highlights its symbolic power to re-establish hope, love, and inclusiveness when we need it most, a way to reinsert hope into the land. .
