For INSITE97, Miguel Río Branco presented Between the Eyes, the Desert/Entre los ojos, el desierto, a projected triptych of hundreds of shifting still images of the border region’s desert landscape and faces of San Diego and Tijuana residents. The images were set to music and projected onto the wall of a dilapidated room in the ReinCarnation Project in downtown San Diego. Río Branco wanted the dynamic mirage-like images to reflect the way in which people around the border blend with one another as well as with the surrounding geography.

Curators: Jessica Bradley, Olivier Debroise, Ivo Mesquita, and Sally Yard
