Borderless - United States Of North Americaby Erika Harrsch
-"United States of North America (2009), a fictitious passport, that joins the three NAFTA members' passport heraldics: Canada, U.S.A. and México. This piece expands the boundaries of these individual countries, questions the concept of nation, reflects on the NAFTA treaty and raises a conversation about immigration. The Monarch Butterfly, known for its migrations between Canada and Mexico, is an emblematic representation of a nation without borders; a linked reference with people's multi-national, multi-generational migrations that are increasing in today's global world in constant mobility.-
