What are the borders in your life? Borders Snapshots are short meditations,
reflections, and ideas about borders. A border can be a boundary between
countries, or a point in your life: leaving home, growing older, a
new job, a new town, any point in your life where you cross from one
thing to another.
What does a Snapshot look like? It can be a digital video, a poem,
an essay, music or photography anything which explores borders,
real and imagined, visible and invisible.
