The SAVE / SAFE wiki machine is an open platform forming an associative ground. It is as much a reading as a writing machine creating associative perception. Anyone can post his / her individual views, thus staying with her / his own creation and at the same time influencing the overall project and the other authors’ and the users’ perception.

As much as the starting plot SAVE / SAFE can be viewed in a linear way or in parts through individual choices it lets you use all material contained to recompose and edit it or to upload newly created content to your personally created thread of individual meaning, expressing own thoughts on borderlining in the context of post-humanity.

At the same time, the structure of The SAVE / SAFE wiki machine is a direct mirror and reflection of borderlining as an expression of contemporary approaches to communication, self-understanding and identity:

today a person’s visualization could be overstressed by a home-made, looping movie consisting of […] imaginative photos and videos, loose compositions forming chains of association […] reeling in front of the inner eye with flattering speed, getting stopped and restarted again – a series of flat imagery, easy to be joined by other images.
