Two professors from California, USA are going viral online and the reason is will leave you stunned and smiling at the same time. Ronald Rael and Virginia San Fratello recently installed three pink seesaws across the US-Mexico border in an attempt to protests against US President Donald Trump’s border wall and the Internet is in love with it.

Donald Trump had planned to build a wall along the 2,000-mile boundary between the two countries which lead to a lot of controversy and protests by people. But the three pink seesaws are trying to reconnect people through symbolism and internet is filled with joy and excitement.

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
