Voices from the Borderland spotlights artists working in and around Mansfield, Ohio. We want to capture the Genius Loci of the region by gathering the work of local artists—each voicing out from their own private Borderland—into a single online presence.
Borderland? A Borderland marks the outermost boundary of an explored, mapped, and settled territory. Within the Borderland is the known; outside of the Borderland is the unknown, the Other. Artists colonize the fringes of the known, embarking into the unvoiced regions of human experience, the unconscious, the fabled dark forests, returning with a taste of the ineffable.
