Created with a Fulbright grant, her SURFACE TENSION project explores three contested borders that address political, historic, international, and governmental policies. Her exhibition juxtaposes two geographies half a world apart, the US-Mexico border and the Occupied Palestinian Territories, in parallel with present-day Berlin are her subjects. Warpinski writes, “Through these photographs, I probe varying aspects of power and conflict and the consequences incurred when national desires for security dominate other social or environmental concerns.” Her images of Berlin depict the space of reconciliation. In places, sections of the wall have been left standing as markers and documentation at these sites give historical context to its role post-WWII.”

This exhibition is relevant to our current time and to ongoing policy and political issues. Two of the border conflicts are still not resolved, with instances of violence and brutality. Furthermore, the topic of borders and conflict is relevant to the current situation in Ukraine.
