Today, the border is very much in the zeitgeist. The border spaces around the studio change shape daily with gentrification. People continue to be categorized by their border status: native, settler, refugee, asylum seeker, migrant, etc. But it is in the space of the border where we connect or disconnect. By defining space — or, in some cases, by breaking it up — both order and its opposite are referenced, alternately building up and breaking down the boundaries that stand in for human connection and isolation.
