n 2015, the art collective Postcommodity, along with the help of local communities, installed a series of 28 huge inflatable spheres emblazoned with an insignia known as the “open eye” that has existed in Indigenous cultures from South America to Canada for thousands of years. The spheres extended north and south of the border a mile in each direction, acting as "a metaphorical suture stitching together cultures that have inhabited these lands long before borders were drawn.” Through the Repellent Fence provides a glimpse into the process of creating this monumental work of Land Art as well as its impact on border communities.
