The Transborder Immigrant Tool (TBT) by Electronic Disturbance Theater 2.0/b.a.n.g. lab is a last mile safety device designed to aid the disoriented of any nationality in a desert environment. The project's interactive platform was developed and tested in southern California's Anza-Borrego Desert State Park from 2009 to 2012. Its code is executable when and if one adds the coordinates of functional water caches to its poetic program. Its poetry, another executable code included here after our project statement "Of Ecopoetics and Dislocative Media," comprises TBT's desert survival series.
