We are looking for bold, beautiful, and new interpretations on all the ways we interface with borders and boundaries in our world:  travel, immigration, maps, gender, sexuality, love, citizenship, race, the physical body, language, death, the interior vs. the exterior, atmospheric layers, psychological barriers, prisons, fences, rules and relationships, challenging the boundaries among genres, and anything else this theme conjures up.
