On The Fence is a digital photo-montage inspired by the 2011 Chilean student movement. During the 8-month protest, students from middle school to college level stacked chairs and dangled them on all the school fences throughout Santiago as a symbolic form of protest. Nelson then photographed their stacked piles and created a digitally manipulated collage with a roller coaster template.
