Border Crossings Project

UNT Sophomore Interior Design Class of 2017 created the Border Crossings Project consisted of an international project where the sophomore interior design team was able communicate with different universities from all over the world (Dundee, Ljubljana, and Amsterdam). They created a sculpture with the other countries using a website created for correspondence and video chat sessions. The sculpture revolved around the concept of interconnectivity.

Their last contribution was a reactionary video to the sculpture that they had created with the other countries. Their crew was inspired by the reading, Eyes of the Skin by Juhani Pallasmaa. They incorporated different languages to show how different cultures can come together to create meaningful artwork and used fire to demonstrate how evanescent visual products can be.
