Shifting Borders alludes to the political and arbitrary reorganizing of property and countries due to political parties in power and tyrannical heads of state. The confusion and reliability of knowing where boundaries begin and end are in question; maps are not definitive but an approximation. Even with GPS technologies that allow us to pinpoint a location, it’s still uncertain that the traveller will find their destination with ease.
