For seven hours we drove on dirt roads going west. They left us on the side of an isolated road in the mountains. It was evening. We camped that evening and left the next morning.

Charles Mary Kubricht<br /> 3594, 18.08.07, 12:56, received an email from a stranger. ‘Greetings from New Orleans, Recently, on a drive from Marfa toward Mexico, Karen Bernstein told me that you have been observing the beautiful grasses in Texas and making paintings about tracking. Listening to her, I remembered a written piece about tracking that a friend named Jeff Tietz wrote for the New Yorker a few years ago…I remember being blown away by his descriptions of the teeny signs and the vastness of the area being patrolled, the overwhelming-ness of the whole border situation.’, 2007-8   archival inkjet print, ed: 3<br /> 10" x 13 1/3"

Charles Mary Kubricht<br /> 00378, 18.07.07, 17:23, interview with three Undocumented Workers, ‘All day we walked through high mountains before seeing the river. It was near sunset when we found a shallow area of water to cross. After the river we climbed mountains again before coming to a highway. We crossed the highway as a group. We climbed more mountains, following the rim to find the easiest crossing across the canyons. After the third day passed we realized that the guide was lost. Always he said that he knew the way., 2007-8   archival inkjet print, ed: 3<br /> 10" x 13 1/3"
Charles Mary Kubricht<br /> 2692, 18.03.07, 12:54, received a book of writings by Goethe as a gift. ‘For the observer never sees the pure phenomenon with his own eyes; rather, much depends on his mood, the state of his senses, the light, air, weather, the physical object, how it is handled, and a thousand other circumstances. Hence it is like trying to drink the sea dry if we try to stay with the individual aspect of the phenomenon, observe it, measure it, weigh it, and describe it.’ Goethe, Empirical Observation and Science, Weimer, January 15, 1798., 2007-8  archival inkjet print, ed: 3<br /> 10" x 13 1/3"
