Several historical moments, technological stages of development, and political agendas converge at Mount Livermore, which is located 50 miles from the US–Mexico border in far West Texas. It is a landmark for drug smugglers, undocumented workers, US Border Patrol trackers, scientists, and environmentalists. By exploring the continuously shifting figure-ground relations of this multivalent landscape, the series Slight Disturbances questions what constitutes viewpoint, wholeness of form, shape, and perceptual field.
