stumbled upon this net artwork by Coco Fusco. ‘Turista Fronterizo’, or ‘Border Tourist’, lets you play (a Monopoly-esque board) as one of four characters – thankfully only temporarily, after all it’s only a game! An anthropology student, a ‘Binational Businessman’, a freelancer (lo que encuentre – whatever one finds) and a Huev√≥n (a lazy person, a loafer). After you choose your role you get to experience, through low-fi rolling animated gifs, life, as it were, south of the border.
