Borderlands pertain to a Shinto concept: an indeterminate place or region that signals a liminal zone or place of possible encounter between the living and the dead (or, between the world of mortals and that of kami). Here it is envisaged as a landscape, as visible and unreachable as the horizon, and over which the complexities of the human mind/spirit are overlaid.
