place and identity exist entangled abstracted
solid bound document and stamps
a passport abstracts nationhood
a border as vague as dotted line
place is abstracted surveilled
satellite data, meshed and weaved to locate
i have many places I've called home
A disputed border makes mapped nationhood seem absurd
Message from a friend looking for a border.
I am in 25.5788° N, 91.8933° E.
She is in 51.9244° N, 4.4777° E.
place is map is scalable longing and belonging
a chair can feel like home, so too can a country
dissecting a map from surveillance
how can I dissect a place?
