Pierre Depaz – SimBorder

Pierre Depaz

SimBorder is an algorithmic exploration of the complex system surrounding the issues of immigration and refugees at an international level. The programme generates a group of neighbouring countries, each of them with its own panel of public policies directly connected to the entry of refugees. As a simulation, SimBorder is not objective; like any system, it expresses the will of its author.

Pierre Depaz is a french artist and programmer currently living in the United States. He graduated from the Institute of Political Studies of Lille, he is currently teaching at the University of New York.
