A screen installed in wheat fields around Lopoke and Preet Nagar (Indian Punjab) transmits real-time panoramic views of wheat fields from locations in Pakistani Punjab. The work integrates, symbolically, the two partitioned sides of rural Punjab through the physical joining of the screen and the fields, inviting audiences to consider what is still shared between the lands on either side of the border. What does it mean to till the land that has witnessed profound bloodshed? How does soil bind a divided people?
