Main lessons learned
The exhibition built on experiences from participatory exhibitions at the Museum of Work in Norrköping and at the Not Quite artist collective. During these exhibitions we had tested custom made versions of the Bordr iPhone app on interactive iPads in the exhibition halls. With great results. Inspired by artistic border exploration such as the Vandring – Vittring project, the Project Borders Vision took experimentation to a new level, and tested a whole range of new techniques to include the audience to tell their own stories.
Fully interactive exhibition that explored multi-dimensional borders of the audience, it combined lessons from camera lending projects and previous exhibitions into a visionary and experimental display of Bordr methods and concepts that paved the way for the creation of the Bordr organization. The exhibition also showed borders crossed by participants in the Across African Borders, Project Borders Queens, Stateless in Jordan, and Borders of Dals Långed camera lending projects.
The exhibition was held at the Steneby School of Design and Crafts, Sweden, November 9 – December 3, 2013
