Borders are everywhere and we cross them every day. Bordr is an app for sharing border stories – your experiences of political and metaphorical border crossings. As a database of borders, it compares your experience with others and how the perception of a border changes over time.
Bordr started as “Project Borders”, a graduate studies project at The New School under the thesis supervision of Christiane Paul and in design collaboration with Marcus Haraldsson. The photos, stories, and experiences you share will contribute to the continuing research project and form the material for ongoing research and exhibitions.
Bordr is available at http://db.bordr.org. What border have you crossed?
