Since 2001, Shahram Entekhabi has used cordon tape to create new, temporary territories in public space. He has used his performances to question our view of this kind of tape and pointed out how physical spaces are segregated and how certain groups of the population are prevented from going where they please. Throughout the years, he has conducted these performances, also known as "No Exits", "Cautions", "Attention", "Hazard"..., many different places around the world.
