Opening Reception: Friday, March 12

Last summer, my sisters and I went hiking in the Mühlviertel in Upper Austria, north of the Danube. Halfway into a day of wandering through woodlots and along fields and streams, we suddenly came upon the border between Austria and the Czech Republic. Remnants of historical differences cast an eerie shadow on the sunny meadow. Having stepped over barbed wire into the former Czechoslovakia to eat our lunch, we noticed a watchtower at the edge of the forest, next to a farmhouse. The tower does not show up on any of our snap shots.
