Friendly Frontier is an inflatable mountain range equipped with emergency slides to bridge international borders. It is a symbolic territory that operates as an open border to be used like a child’s toy to slide with ease between nation states. It has become the
focal point for a number of public events, inviting participants to consider the ideal of a world living in peace and collaboration together.

For Wysing the artists organised an event during which dolls, representing nations, would be thrown across the frontier in a gesture of crossing boundaries and borders.
