“The Immigration Project,” installation & photography
This project deals with all the personal information SEVIS (formerly known as INS) might choose to obtain to monitor international students in the US. In working with students from all over the world, the artist obtained their photos and fingerprints to create large-scale digital portraits of each student. Each image contains about 4000 life-size fingerprints. They are part of an installation that consists of current immigration forms and a hereto-fitted sound piece.
