WITHIN A BORDER CITY

PIGMENTED ARCHIVAL

INJET PRINTS

2017

THE CITY OF TUCSON, ARIZONA RESIDES FOURTY MINUTES FROM THE U.S. MEXICO BORDER AND HAS A 41.6%  HISPANIC POPULATION. I WAS LIVING HERE DURING THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION OF DONALD TRUMP, WHO RAN HIS CAMPAIGN WITH THE PROMISE OF BUILDING A WALL BETWEEN THESE TWO COUNTRIES THAT WOULD BE PUT THE CURRENT ONE TO SHAME. THIS SERIES IS AN INVESTIGATION OF THE PERSONAL BORDERS BUILT BETWEEN THE RESIDENTS OF THIS CITY IN AN EFFORT TO QUESTION THE PURPOSE AND IMPACT OF WALLS OF DIVISION. ARE WE TRYING TO PREVENT WHAT LIVES OUTSIDE FROM ENTERING, OR ARE WE CONTAINING AND MAINTAINING PRIVACY OF WHAT IS INSIDE?
