"During the projection, you could sense the kind of electricity and pain among those who came to witness it. The position of the image was very special. Standing in front of the building we saw the face over our heads speaking to us (as if we were small children, tiny people looking at figures of authority), but also speaking to the larger world beyond. The speech was directed to the crowd, to the border, to San Diego...in the direction of the United States."
