The Best of all Possible Worlds consists of a historical timeline, a film and a photograph, which connect my biography to Skeleton Canyon, New Mexico. The timeline uses autobiographical and historical moments of erasure and re-presentation to trace an imaged history of the American landscape. The photograph is a re-photographed image of Timothy O Sullivan’s surveys of the American West. The film is sited in Skeleton Canyon, New Mexico. Skeleton Canyon is within a mountain range that extends from southern New Mexico and over the border to Mexico. It is the location of Geronimo’s surrender, as well as the site that marks the end of the American Indian Wars; now it is an area that is heavily patrolled by U.S. Border Patrol as it is often used as a passageway by smugglers and migrants for the same reason Geronimo used it as a stronghold. The film documents the traces of the Border Patrol and presents occupation as a kind of geological event.
