A quadrate forms a very temporary barrier in an agricultural landscape in southern Sweden. The industrialized agriculture can place seeds and fertilizer with precise distance and depth. Sensors minimizes spillage to this randomless monoculture. The control of seeds in a monoculture is the opposite for the water that flows through the massive drainage system of this flat land Meandering streams have been straightened out and open ditches have disappeared. The root system of trees keeps the soil and water and protect the crops from wind, but many rows of trees is also removed in the landscape. The agricultural landscape in southern Sweden almost completely lacks the barriers and protection to combat erosion and eutrophication. Who owns and controls our common landscape? For whom are the barriers and shelters of the landscape formed.
