Arete Libro: La Frontera
A book distributed across two earrings, a wearable index of the U.S./Mexico Border with
small pages made of recycled drum-head leather. The San Patricio Battalion, coyotes and
pollitos, Monarch butterflies, free to traverse the Americas and cempasuchiles/marigolds,
the flower of the dead on both sides, and Joaquín Torres García’s “Upside-down Map”
of the Americas, 1943, each fill one of the pages.
