The Ukrainian railway became almost the only possible way of leaving dangerous territories in the first days, weeks, and months of the war. In order to protect passengers from fragments of glass from the windows, which may fly away from the possible shellings of trains, the windows began to be sealed with tape. Tape remains on train windows today, continuing to protect the integrity of the glass on dangerous routes. Becoming an obvious obstruction when looking at the scenery from the train window, it glues together the disparate landscapes of the country, superimposing the image of war on them. Tape lines become a pattern that stitches together a new reality and at the same time blurs it, preventing it from being seen clearly.
