Week 2 involved exploring various types of so-called "immaterial" borders, especially as they intersect with physical ones. We looked at the US/Mexico border, and a series of online projects that examine through games and fiction; the Straits and Gibraltar, migrant labor, and attempts to setup non-state electronic networks across it; and borders of gender, and especially how that intersects with the right of women to move freely throughout the city.
