Domestication is a violent process that cuts an interior space out of the vast external environment. The threshold which exists neither inside nor outside, is seen as the point where domestication starts. This piece borrows from the tradition of placing food grains on the doorstep to signal wealth that farming brings. Here, however, the violence of the process of transformation from natural to domestic is shown.
