United Divide

3558UNITED DIVIDE: A Linear Portrait of the USA/Canada Border

The border between Canada and the United States is a space that reflects the relationship between these two countries. As a cartographic construct, the boundary has no thickness, yet in its collision with the landscape, it takes physical form and dimension. This exhibit travels the 3,500-mile-long border across the middle of the continent, from east to west, focused on the structures that the line encounters and creates.
