The Divide

Two raindrops land, inches from each other on a high mountain ridge. One drop travels to the Pacific Ocean, the other to the Atlantic. The Continental Divide is an unwavering wedge that drives two similar things thousands of miles apart.

This ancient geographic system of division and other societal forms of division were the inspiration for this project, which looks at how different groups polarize and converge. The lines used to build these works are made from photographs of the Continental Divide
