Flesh and Sand

Carne y arena

United States, 2017


Based on true accounts, Carne y arena is a virtual reality installation in three acts where the superficial lines between subject and bystander are blurred and bound together, allowing individuals to walk in a vast space and thoroughly live a fragment of the immigrant’s personal border crossings.
