Counterfictions is a sound, architecture piece that constructs alternative realities on the border after the construction of Trump’s  wall proposal. The story starts with a journalistic comment on Donald Trump’s wall, and ends with a haunting myth of biologists tracking a genetically mutated species along the U.S.-Mexico border. Counterfictions weaves together information from scientific facts, Trump’s quote, fictional literature and mythology.
