Derrida said: “there is nothing outside the text”. In human landscapes, there is nothing outside the boundaries.
Human Territories are delineated by boundaries, with the aim of limiting the rational space: exterior/interior. These limits are artificial in the example of the Mexico-USA border, where a fence on the Sonora Desert separates two national territories; or natural in the case of the Pacific Ocean marking the limit of Mazatlan, Mexico. I propose a third example with a third picture of the Rio Hondo: This river marks the division of two national states. On the right side: México; on the left side: Belize. A given geography is not only a passive surface but also a symbolic landscape. It could be said that a symbolic landscape is the rationalization of a territory.
