TRACING THE ENORMITY OF THE U.S.-MEXICO BORDER

One of the most striking aspects of the 2016 U.S. presidential election has been Donald Trump's repeated promise that he'd built a wall across the entire U.S.-Mexico border and get Mexico to pay for it. It's been hugely popular among Trump supporters, who - despite much of the border being heavily secured already - believe that illegal immigration from Mexico has spun out of control, supported by Trump's claims that the country is sending over criminals and drugs.

Field Of Vision, uploaded by this Vimeo user, strings together 200,000 satellite images which demonstrate the seemingly impossible task of building on all 2,000 miles of the border. It's artfully made, as every shot has a different grain and tone to it, but will it change Trump voters' minds? Trump has made such bold claims that've been difficult to challenge with facts, while speaking to voters with big ideas spoken in straightforward language. There's only a week or so to go, we'll see...
