While driving through construction areas in villages or settlements on the edge of smaller towns the exemplarily parceled segments which are built with single-family homes increasingly attract attention; demarcations arranged around an imaginary center or lined up like pearls on a chain. How far can or must one go to protect himselve from the "others" ? What one is willing to do to keep it for himselve ? What is the risk one runs it? How the conflict is constituded between the attempt of the defense of the "outside" and the restrictions linked with it on the "inside" ?
