The Process, 2020

Ink on vellum paper

11 in. x 26 in.

Each page juxtaposes the Application of Naturalization of the United States with images of detention centers. This is a transparent look at the reality of the immigration process and the difficulties that immigrants face on their way to find a new home. The contrast between the images and the documents, attempt to humanize a process that for some consist of paperwork, while for others entail a long journey where the desired destination is not always a guaranteed.
