Minefield 1
Spraypaint on earth documented by edition of 10 13"x 10" archival inkjet prints. 2004

Minefield A response to The United States perpetuatation of the production and implementations of mines. Children of the "third world" get their limbs blown off every day because of this. Why aren't we stopping this? Would this be stopped if mines were found in the yards of people living in the United States?
I found an image at www.mnftiu.cc of a map used by a mine clearing team in Afghanistan. The solid lines let them know the areas they still need to clear, and the broken lines represent where they have cleared. Using spraypaint, I redrew this map on my lawn. The prints document this temporary drawing.
