No. 6 - I Am On My Own, 2017  |  Three-Channel Video - 6min

 

No. 6 – I Am On My Own is a three-channel video project documenting a chance encounter in the “Devil’s Highway” at the United States and Mexico border. The work confronts the moral, legal and historical complexities of immigration in the Southwestern United States. Shaky GoPro footage records the artist and his partner as they struggle to help a desperate migrant lost in the Sonora desert. As they drive through checkpoints and past border patrol, a narrative develops, and the migrant explains his purpose for knowingly risking his life in the deadliest region of the continent.
