Departing from the paradox that international borders are imaginary lines with real political implications, I've deconstructed the border of this 1957 map belonging to the Creole Petroleum Corporation, (a forerunner of modern-day PDVSA, Venezuela’s state-owned oil company)- to talk about the unprecented inflation in the Venezuelan economy, and how, smuggling oil across the border, has become the only lifeline for many of its ordinary citizens.  The installation was later completed to include the borders of all thirteen Latin American countries.
