While visiting California Western School of Law in San Diego, where there is so much tension over the US/Mexico border, Patricia saw an art installation around the idea of borders jointly produced by the arts communities in San Diego and Tijuana. This quilt expresses the irony of constructing a fence between people - in this case continuing out to sea so that one wonders if the fish observe the lines.
Quilt Detail: In memory of Esequiel Hernandez, Jr., a Texas teenager killed while tending goats near his home at the border, 1997.
Quotation from Robert Frost's poem Mending Wall:
"He only says
Good fences make
Before I built a wall
I'd ask to know
What I was walling
in or walling out."
