From Creative Time, Social Practice Archive: Produced by the Windsor, Canada-based collective Broken City Lab—an artist-led interdisciplinary research group—Cross-Border Communication was a performative public art project that took place in November 2009 between the cities of Windsor and Detroit, which are separated by the Detroit River. For three nights, Broken City Lab projected a series of messages across the river which were visible in Detroit. The messages were direct and sincere: "We're in this together," "We've missed you," "Want to be friends?" and "We need to talk," to name a few. The action was a pivotal moment for the group, which has often utilized language and dialogue in their practice since then.
