Minor Border Adjustments
With this project, I make small changes to map of the Northern Ireland border using Photoshop’s ‘Heal’ brush, and then uploaded the results over a period of weeks to Wikipedia. With each upload the changes are accompanied by the comment ‘minor border adjustments’.
This is currently an important political obstacle with Brexit and the future of North/South relations, and I wanted to do something that was slightly absurd with more than a nod to Baudrillard, but also intending to reflect the seriousness of the issue.
My favourite adjustment has a small pocket of the Republic of Ireland lodged into the south of Fermanagh.
