Description (in English): 

After nearly ten years, the themes dealt with in Tech-illa Sunrise: Un/A Remix are
still as relevant as ever. Salvador Barajas examines the issues of borders,
identities, and xenophobia through the lens of technology. The website is a
collage of archival images, texts and elements taken from popular culture. The
diversity of Chicano identity is also explored and takes shape within the text. The
user navigates in a frenetic environment, reminiscent of the beginnings of
cyberspace. Moving from hyperlink to hyperlink, the threat becomes palpable as
"warning" signs abound and alert the user of a mysterious virus that will not only
attack their computer but also their preconceived ideas.
