"All pages in this book are redacted from the artist's own archives of immigration documents"--Colophon.

The work is bare of text and contains only black lines and squares on blue paper. Held in folded vellum sleeve.

Related to a section of the artist's 2016 solo exhibition of works on paper, "Chun removes all text from immigration papers sourced from various countries, leaving only the skeletal lines and grids. Printed onto translucent blueprint vellum paper and layered to create new visual arrangements, the immigration forms become outlines for new Homes"--Spencer Brownstone Gallery website, July 7, 2022.
