OF A LEAF OR A FEATHER 2015 San Ysidro Land Port of Entry, CA The artwork for the Southbound Pedestrian Pathway at the busiest border crossing in the world takes advantage of its location vis à vis the sun and provides pedestrian interest and comfort on the walk towards Mexico. Its conceptual roots in nature as well as American symbols, allude to agave leaves or eagle feathers, but is open-ended in interpretation.
