This print is also part of the series “Borders”. It attempts to depict the landscape and activity in the border between Mexico and the US. Filled with symbols, it is a subtle rendition of various aspects of migration from the south to the north.
Pieces of pages from 17th and 18th century books (text in Spanish and in English) have been sewn over and chine collé. The space in between represents the Rio Grande. A blind embossment of text from the Codex Mendoza appears over the entire print.
