Last night, Kevin, Josh, Sara and I sat down for an intensive work period dedicated to How to Forget the Border Completely. Our task was to place all the awesome projects we’ve been working on into InDesign and start visually investigating how we wanted our publication to come together.
To get a jump start on laying the groundwork for our upcoming How to Forget the Border Completely project, we have decided to interview a small group of individuals who may be considered “experts” of the Windsor-Detroit border in some way.
Kero, a musician/graphic designer/video artist, was our first candidate for a video interview. He has had the frustrating experience of having to cross the border into Detroit quite frequently, many times spending up to an hour being screened upon entry.
Kero shared some border crossing stories–some of which truly highlight the absurdity of current border protocol–and shared ideas for how to improve the border-crossing experience, if even slightly.
