The DMZ (de-militarized zone) is one of the most heavily fortified borders in the world. A 4-mile wide swath of land that marks the separation between South and North Korea. It is a physical and ideological divide that cuts a single country in two. It is also ironically one of the most lush and verdant natural habitats in the world—having been untouched by humans for over 70 years.

The images on this grid-installation are views through a telescope from South Korea, across the DMZ, to North Korea. The view is across an ideological and real border, a military zone, a verdant natural habitat.
