“An act of empathy”
This piece of art forms part of a series I am currently working on about the deaths of undocumented Mexican migrants. These people lost their lives in an attempt to cross the border between the US and Mexico through the Arizona desert.
My work uses the information from the mapping data collected by Humane Borders, a non-profit organisation that promotes the rights of migrants and social justice. I have refined the data collected about these individuals through a labour intensive hand-written process.
This is my act of empathy for those who have suffered the consequences of the border.
