The Other | Collaboration with Mark Kelly
THE OTHER project explores our polarized nation’s approach to unconditional compassion and human dignity. The project found its inspiration from a visit to the US/ Mexico border region of Arizona in October 2018. This included on-site printmaking and interviews with many different sides dealing with immigrant issues in this specific location: from the US border patrol who police the area and who enforce the borders, to the organizations who provide water and aid to undocumented migrants. A short book of 5 stories was written by Anneli Skaar and produced as a companion piece to the cyanotype print. Kelly and Skaar created two talks on the subject matter, and the print and the stories were featured in Hawk & Handsaw in February of 2019.
