Tijuana artist Oscar Ortega's project for inSITE94, "A Corner of a World ... Land/Una esquina de un mundo ... tierra" was a mural sited on an abandoned and collapsing building located just yards from the Pacific Ocean and the border fence at Playas de Tijuana. In 1994 the artist restored the mural, originally created in 1992, to reinvigorate its points of reference. According to Ortega, the mural illustrated a ship whose crew is facing the choice of either heading south or north all while having to repair and maintain the vessel for the voyage that ultimately lies ahead. --inSITE94
