Animation of 382 Monotypes. 2019.

 

This work in progress explores the use of dot markers on maps and their abstract representation of place. Online directories use similar dot plotting to track migrant deaths where a single red dot marks a life lost to exposure, dehydration, or violence on the border. From scanning of the horizon, termed “line watching” by border patrol, appears a single red dot. With each monotype “frame”, the dot shifts further and further from its point of origin.
