Not on view

This is an artist's book by Jesse Chun based on her series of works titled "Blueprints" from 2016. The book is a collection of Chun’s immigration papers sourced from various countries which were then archived, copied, and printed onto translucent vellum paper. Devoid of text and removed from its original bureaucratic function, the forms' remaining lines and grids offer room for viewers to build their own stories of transition and belonging.
