Borderlands (2024) is a series of seven laser engravings on black sandpaper. Rendered black on black, the hard-to-decipher drawings riff off medieval depictions of animals where the intended creature and its depiction only nominally match. A leopard with a human-like face, a snake that resembles a dragon, an owl with a moustache interact with diagrammatic time cones. All of these are merely approximations of their intended (whether creature or time), and each allows to both fix a possibility as well as to expand its horizon.
