More > border fence. This art installation used images of a section of a new vehicle border, installed in 2008, that divides the land of the Tohono O'odham, an indigenous tribe that has lived in the land long before the existence of the US, Mexico, the Gadsden Purchase, or Homeland Security. The fence sunders the community, disrupts ceremonial paths, desecrates sacred burial grounds and prevents members from receiving critical health services.
