Desbordar el territorio, bordear, explorar nuestro afuera. Apostar a apropiarse de las zonas y objetos que no tienen nombre. Infringir. Disentir para labrar nuevos caminos.

Un recorrido en la frontera es siempre inaprensible, desdibujado. Pero urge volver a circundar cada tanto nuestro margen, nuestro afuera, nuestro límite: hacernos ajenos para volver a vernos.
