Abstract
I created a video titled, 8x8, inspired by the music composer Arnold Schoenberg. I then made a documentary titled, Juarez Mothers Fight Femicide. It is about the rapes and murders happening in the Ciudad Juarez border region near Texas in the Mexican State of Chihuahua. However, all of my work culminated with the interactive border-door art-piece titled, Tumstyle. I argue that my work is not only culturally relevant to current affairs but also contributes to the necessary discourse that advances society towards egalitarianism and mutual respect between all people. Discussed is the process of a Chicana Art Practice.
