exercise on borders

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Physically you can only be in one specific place at a time. You can never occupy one place together with another person at the same time. We are subjected to borders, which we are constantly thrown back on. I cannot be where you are. Your border is mine. The border line separates us and allocates us to territories.

[…] a beautiful meditation on the bilateral loneliness. The territory, which they both were claiming for here, was their body.
