This print is part of the series “Borders”. It attempts to depict the landscape and activity on the border between Mexico and the US. 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 (Spanish and English text) have been sewn over and after, chine collé. An abstracted figure has been printed on relief representing someone swimming across the Rio Grande. A blind embossment of text from the Codex Mendoza appears over the entire print.
