Bordertown is a study in conflict, social partition and border construction in Australia. The investigation is centred on a community that straddles two states, a place renowned for historic conflicts. For those living in Bordertown today, existence consists of daily confrontations with an impassable barrier; a wall being constructed along the border at the frontier of two Australian states that divides the community into two territories: North and South. A series of interviews documents the experience of two women who live in Bordertown. These are presented as a sound installation, housed within a large structure that emulates the wall in Bordertown, as well as the political and architectural structures that serve to defend and divide communities.
