The Border Crossings Project consisted of an international outreach where the UNT sophomore interior design team communicated with universities from all over the world (Dundee, Ljubljana, and Amsterdam). They created a sculpture with the other countries using a website created for correspondence and video chat sessions. The sculpture revolved around the concept of interconnectivity. 
Their last contribution was a reactionary video to the sculpture they created with the other countries, receiving inspiration from Eyes of the Skin by Juhani Pallasmaa. The Texas team wanted to convey the importance of tactile sense and auditory skills, and incorporated different languages to show how cultures can come together to create meaningful artwork. They used fire to demonstrate how evanescent visual products can be, hoping to convey how impressionable an emotional response can be.
