A container is moved by pneumatics so that it moved as if it is on sea. The public can step inside the container and experience the suggestion of open sea. The container is empty except for a naked bulb hanging on a string in the middle of the container. The light bulb counter-moves the movements of the container. The sound of cracking and bending metal comes from the springs that support the container and vibrate trough the empty box.
An innocent box that travels the world, yet it contents represent many stories and their journeys can be live changing for those who make them.
The russian artist and activism group Chto Delat (What’s to be done) used this work as an stage for a performative piece on Subvison Art Festival.
Assigned by Subvision Festival, De ServiceGarage, Parachut artists.
