Experiment #2

Fictioning the Border
near Kittyclogher / Easter holiday, 2017

On the 23 June 2016 Mala, the youngest member of a place of their own, turned 3 years old. The UK also voted to leave the EU. With birthday, borders and Brexit in mind we returned to the Irish border in 2017. Using plastic, paper, glitter, ribbon, twigs, chalk, and our human bodies we reimagined the border along a rivers. Oisín (7) decided to make a portal to an underwater dimension. Roma (5) erected a vertical tower for workers. Fionn (15) had an encounter with mutating critters from a non-human world.
