MAS Context releases its seventeenth issue, BOUNDARY

© Larry Mayorga

We all set our personal and physical boundaries. They are important to keep us running as well as sane. Other boundaries, established by people, countries or nature are used to define edges, separate two entities, and interrupt natural flows such as human migrations and ecosystems. Natural and artificial boundaries exist and will continue to do so in one way or another. Is it possible, then, to rethink what a boundary is, what its potential in our society can be, and if we even need them?

The seventeenth issue of the quarterly design journal MAS Context, BOUNDARY, is already out. All the content is available for free at, where you can order a printed copy of the journal and download the electronic version.
