Description/Abstract

"The border is an element of both spatial obstruction and cultural transcendence. I propose that there should be a physical manifestation of this cultural transcendence as there is a border fence to register the material obstruction that the border fence produces. The border, as a political and spatial construction, allows for the formation of separate cultural distinctions and therefore is as much a defining element in the city as other social institutions. The border is the final punctuation mark on this arid landscape."
