Matthias Klos followed this written yet imaginary line around Salzburg, keeping to public rights of way the whole time. The idea for the project came from the well-known 19th century panoramic painting of the city by Johann Michael Sattler. Projected with an idealised 360° perspective the painting opens up views of the city and its outskirts from a central location on the Festungsberg that was not publicly accessible at the time of painting. In his wanderings along the city limits the artist combines the legislative order of the abstract boundary with the image that the city of Salzburg likes to project of itself with localities situated along the boundary line.
