Control systems along land, sea, air and virtual state borders are the subject of work and mutation for scientists, artists, filmmakers, performers, hackers, customs agents, and workers in the surveillance industries and the military. This first of two interviews attends to the inter-disciplinary border-crossing that underpins the operational production of the project.
