In the middle of the page we find a photograph of the landscape. Scarred trees are lying at the sides of a road in Greensburg, Kansas. The outlines of the road are redefined by pieces of scrap. Everyday objects are ripped out of their everyday context and seem fused with the soil. The pieces of debris are leaning or lying down, randomly spread all over the site. Nevertheless an assumed void is absent. The place can not be referred to as "terra nullius" (nomansland). We exist inside a juxtaposition of different territories where space is stipulated as "Land" and outlines are described in the sense of ownership in which space is mostly seen as property.
