A Compendium for Navigating Borderlands
A collection of words and images exploring places, practices and notions of borders, real, imagined, and reimagined.
A border is an imaginary line separating this place from that place, us from them, and you from me. The origin of the word comes from the coloured bands surrounding shields in heraldry, signifying identity of the noble, and a shield, which protects during battles.
Photographs taken, collages created and poems written during Covid lockdowns in Bulanaming / Marrickville.
