Setting out from the conventional understanding of museum limitations to the movement of the public within the exhibition grounds, the work inverts this situation and creates an invisible space within the space. Through the use of surveillance cameras sensitive to movement, the work marks out an invisible border that activates an alarm when crossed. Instead of setting off the alarm when the visitor moves too close to the wall, as is the custom in exhibition spaces to keep a distance between the public and the artworks, it does the opposite here, only allowing movement within one metre from the wall into the space. Hence, it prevents the visitor from moving freely and thus experiencing the empty space.
