Consider this territorially imagined line – the border, its powers of inclusion and exclusion, and its ability to simultaneously promote both unity and conflict. Borders also contain/define/give rise to our sense of nationalism, and related historical and current cultural practices and narratives that are perpetuated in a variety of ways help to define ones sense of nation-hood and ownership.
Consider, also, the ‘no man’s land’ itself; it is at once, the in-between space of the border, the borderless scape of cyber space, and the place within us that cannot so easily be explained by the nationality on our passport. The no man’s land, in all its diversity is a relevant space that is the reality of many in the globalized world of today.
The project, No Man’s Land invites participants from diverse locations and backgrounds to utilize cyber space as the primary space, to expand upon and/or oppose these and other related points that may arise out of their own personal experiences.
