The drawn animation, created by the erasing technique, explores the link between social life and city planning. It is divided into four scenes, while in each of the scenes life in a common ground takes place.

In the first scene, a net-like structure arises in front of us. Life is very symmetrical in such a setting; the cars have clear directions and quickly reach their destinations. In the second scene, we find ourselves in a city created solely by rectangular yards, which are the only common grounds for social meeting and free time. In the single yards things happen in a very similar way: children play in the middle, around them seniors talk, parents gather in groups. In the upper left corner the observers cumulate. Upper right corner is reserved for political groups. In the lower corner leisure activities take place. There is also space for public speeches and demonstrations in the lower part, while in the upper part a sports ground can be found. The third scene brings us again into a town built on a net-structure, which is, however, shifted into a form of a chessboard. Even though the town remains precisely planned, living in it is much more organic, it requires more of one´s own sense for decision-making and orientation. Within the last, fourth situation, the environment changes rapidly. The inhabitants find themselves in an empty free space, not being determined by the structure of the town and therefore forced to create their own order. In the first moments, they create a basic division of the space: in the middle of the newly-built society there arises room for children´s play, which is surrounded by the elderly. First of all are the paths among the people being created systematically, then they tend to grow further. The situation initially reminds us of a demonstration, but over time the community divides into smaller parts and changes constantly.
