We live in a border city in a de-industrializing region, alongside a famous American city in a time of great turmoil causing security concerns among the ruling elites. The river divides Windsor and Detroit; lines separate us on maps, border security agents treat us all as potential threats, and yet citizens across these barriers have similar concerns and often act as though the border doesn’t exist. Many work in one place and live in the other, some students use Wayne State and UWindsor as if they were one campus, and people shop and dine in each locality all the time.

We talked to Michelle Soulliere, a 4th year student in the Bachelor of Fine Arts Program in the studio, and by phone, Dr Lee Rodney who teaches in the Visual Arts program, both here at UWindsor.
