The Mexico – United States Border (East & West) are two accordion books (each 10 x 1000 inches) that examine the entire border through Google Maps satellite imagery: in the West from the Pacific coast’s urbanized area between San Diego and Tijuana, eastward to the Colorado River Delta and Sonoran Desert, through the Chihuahuan Desert, then following the course of the Rio Grande to the Gulf of Mexico in the East. The aerial images are stitched together and straightened along the borderline.
Created as a collaboration between 9 artists, It’s doing it is an online group exhibition of computer generated images that autonomously updates on a daily basis over the course of 45 days. All of the works in the show are instruction-based artworks expressed through computer programs written by the artists. These programs generate new images once daily that can be viewed on the website.
