terra incognita uses found surveillance footage, focusing on borders and boundaries where surveillance or webcamera technology have become our main source of imagery of the landscape. Footage is from scientific expeditions in Antarctica, target camera and reconnaissance missions in Iraq and Afghanistan, and surveillance cameras in the desert along the US–Mexico border.
