Pollos y Loadtrucks is a series of cotton x-stitcheries that depict x-rays and infrared images of undocumented immigrants crossing the US/Mexico border illegally. Images were collected from the US Border Patrol, Minuetmen, and commercial security websites. Using a computer program the digital files were translated into counted x-stitch maps, each stitch representing a single pixel of the original image.
