Ground Control (El Paso/Ciudad Juarez)
Hand Woven Wool
9' x 12'

Ground Control is a series of three hand woven wool Gobelin tapestry-rugs that reproduce images of the US/Mexico border at places of conflict taken by the Terra satellite’s Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER.) These were hand woven in Mexico for the amount of money it costs a family of four to cross the US/Mexico border illegally.
