A series of textiles embroidered with the borders of lands that are unrecognized by international law. The artistic process utilizes the pedagogical drawing method of blind contour line drawings, and is applied to the exercise of searching for the definitions of the lines that define the borders of unrecognized lands. Forcing the sewing machine to follow the logic of a blind contour line drawing, the resulting embroideries testify to a constant attempt at following and defining a line that officially doesn’t exist.
