In an attempt to show the protest against US President Donald Trump’s border wall, two professors from California found a unique way that is hitting headlines these days.

Artists named Ronald Rael and Virginia San Fratello have installed three pink seesaws across the US-Mexico border for which they are getting applaud from both sides.

The protest against Donald Trump erupted after US President planned to build a wall along a 2,000-mile boundary shared between the US and Mexico. With this unique idea, the two artists were trying to convey their message of togetherness between the two countries and also showing their rage against the idea of Trump.

Meanwhile, the idea of the two professors commended by netizens as the three pink seesaws are reconnecting the people across the two borders.

One of the most incredible experiences of my and @vasfsf’s career bringing to life the conceptual drawings of the Teetertotter Wall from 2009 in an event filled with joy, excitement, and togetherness at the borderwall. The wall became a literal fulcrum for U.S. - Mexico relations and children and adults were connected in meaningful ways on both sides with the recognition that the actions that take place on one side have a direct consequence on the other side. Amazing thanks to everyone who made this event possible like Omar Rios @colectivo.chopeke for collaborating with us, the guys at Taller Herrería in #CiudadJuarez for their fine craftsmanship, @anateresafernandez for encouragement and support, and everyone who showed up on both sides including the beautiful families from Colonia Anapra, and @kerrydoyle2010, @kateggreen , @ersela_kripa , @stphn_mllr , @wakawaffles, @chris_inabox and many others (you know who you are). #raelsanfratello #borderwallasarchitecture
