Barbosa and Ricalde proposed covering the Puente Mexico (the pedestrian bridge that crosses the Tijuana River and leads from Avenida Revolucion toward the international border crossing at San Ysidro) with a carpet of painted names: a "welcome mat." The project, entitled "Hospitality," was inspired by the way in which color, typography, and first names are employed as marks of identity, much like the woven bracelets sold in handcraft market stalls along the border.
