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 boldly confronts the moral, legal and historical complexities of immigration in Southwestern United States. Shaky Go Pro footage records the artist and companion as they struggle to help a migrant lost in the desert with no water. 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.
