U.S.-MEXICO BORDER WALL: A STUDY IN ABSURDITY

$968 of $570.0M goal

Raised by 20 people in 1 month
Since Mr. Trump's campaign, our design office has found his promised border wall a grand illogical absurdity and inhumane.  We embraced on a design therapy session to create parody considering what Mr. Trump might want his wall to be. Please see the full story at our website:

www.flyingpigsonparade.org

We are funding a prototype of our "wall" to be erected around the Mar-a-Lago compound, the de facto southern presidential residence. We propose this as a means to keep the "bad guys" in. This as an alternate to the irrational and inhumane border wall that will harm many in need, further divide America, and waste tax payer money.

This is also a counter effort to the GoFundMe campaign that has raised $20 million for Mr. Trump's folly. Should we not be able to build our wall around Mar-a-Lago (highly likely), all funds will go to where they are actually needed.... CHARITY - in this case the International Refugee Assistance Program. Let's SPEAK OUT with our wallets! Our group will start with a $500 contribution.

Our GoFundMe stated goal is $570 million (because GFM doesn't allow up to $5.7 billion), 10% of what Mr. Trump intends to spend on an ineffective wall. As with Mr. Trump, we refuse to negotiate on our number.

We are a group of Chicago architects. Our team has previously created the urban art installation, Flying Pigs on Parade: A Chicago River Folly. Proposed for a 2017 installation. The work featured four of the famous Pink Floyd inflatable pig balloons floated to block the T R U M P sign of the Trump building in Chicago. Our projects are intended as a bold visual responses to the loud, illogical and frequently hateful expressions that pollute the activities of our current U.S. leadership. We intend our projects to be a gesture in support of those of more rational, optimistic and inclusive minds.
