Since ancient times mankind has felt the need to build and define situations and concepts in order to create clear boundaries that facilitates its perception of the surrounding world. The human condition does not seem able to conceive the phenomenal and noumenal reality without the help of proper structures, both physical and mental, that somehow impose limits on our actions and thoughts. But only by breaking down these boundaries can lead to a better understanding and expand awareness of themselves.

Therefore, every day we need to face a large number of differences: personal, social, cultural, territorial, linguistic and physical barriers, able to create well enclosed areas. However, rather than being an impediment, this kind of strain, can be a strength as this project aim to suggest combining a detailed system of references on different levels, where the individual language told us about a specific encumbrance.

Basically, these artists describe a contrast between an inner space and outer space, their incompatibility and lack of communication. They are all playing with their borders and with the concept of limit, emphasizing differentiations through a new perspective that can, actually, reveal interesting findings.
