They have traced lines and lived inside them began as an experiment in the spatial potential of sound. The four curators invited artist Sophie Mallett and architect Emma Letizia Jones to collaborate on the creation of a new work, the installation Liminal States. The project aims to bring together the fields of sound and architecture simultaneously from its inception, exploring the resulting inseparability of artistic practice, architecture and curating.

Artist Sophie Mallett and architect Emma Letizia Jones have collaborated to produce Liminal States, a work resulting from a recent trip to Melilla, an autonomous enclave on the North African coast, claimed by Spain but considered occupied territory by Morocco. The installation investigates the aural and spatial politics of border territories. Videos are projected in the gallery and radio transmissions are broadcast to delineate different sonic territories, repurposing the technology often used in surveillance.
