Artist statement: “Butterflies migrate and their migration is beautiful, they’re not restricted by physical borders. When humans restrict the beauty and nature of human migration it brings pain and trauma. It was important for me to incorporate these messages into the image of what migration should be and how detention and deportation are not only unnatural but they’re also detrimental. Rebecca’s letter illuminated the conditions that folks in detention are surviving day to day.” - Chucha Marquez
