At What Cost? A Performative is an interactive piece. It provides a macro view of borders and walls that exist and existed internationally. The piece was constructed to replicate a gameboard with the concepts of plinko and the Michel De Certeau’s “what the map cuts up, the story cuts across” in mind. The act of an individual inserting “currency” into the diorama represents how the flow or placement of currency can make, break, and prevent passage within or across borders and wall. The materials within the diorama may break, but it is subject to the choice of the individual.
