Summary
One and Another State of Yellow (2013-2016) studies the interplay between architecture and urban planning, ideologies and psychological warfare around two landscapes of 'war' in the US: 1) the urban military experiment El Paso-Juárez at the United States-Mexico border; and 2) Washington, DC as the US war and control apparatus. El Paso is an American city that borders directly on Ciudad Juárez, Mexico. In 2010 Juárez was listed as the deadliest city in the world. At the same time El Paso was listed as the safest city in the US. Washington DC can be seen as the big overall political 'constructor' and 'producer' of the landscape of war. The work questions the ways in which architecture and urban planning are strategically employed to threaten or stimulate fear, or even to deceive an audience or enemy.
