Throughout their residency with 11:11, RAKE Collective collated artefacts from external research such as governmental reports, data and maps - as well as from first-hand testimonies and ephemera - to build an evolving, interactive database charting the physical, sociological and bureaucratic construction of borders in the UK. The collection of these artefacts aims to encourage viewers to look at the border landscape as a whole, considering their own and others’ interactions with borders; and by extension, with the state. 

 

During the month, RAKE invited the public to anonymously share their interactions with and impressions of the UK border. A public Telegram group was also set up, acting as a space to share personal experiences and impressions, ask questions and respond to the research in an open, fluid dialogue, not limited by location or borders. As a culmination of the residency and continuation of the work, an online event taking place over a period of two hours was hosted on he group to discuss the impact of and experiences with the UK border.

The database started here continues to grow beyond the residency - playing a key role in RAKE's long-term project 'Police State', which interrogates the systems of control put in place by the UK government and examines the ways in which the state polices its land and people. As such, you can continue to contribute to the fluid archive in various different ways via RAKE Collective’s website.
