Desert with a line through it

 

2004. We were recording a landscape where the desert meets the ocean. We were recording the line – the line that splits them and us. We were recording the fence raised to delineate the first world from the third. Coyote barked out to us, "it's just a desert with a line through it.” For one moment we stood transported into the primeval still of the desert. The desert – which has no border. This piece represents the unseen victims of the US border policies. Collaboration with Alex Dragulescu
