Boxed Inside is about content. A content that is always visible but seems hidden. Its meaning is determind by ist context. For one there ist he ideational content which is abstrakt and defines the essence of an object or space. The largest space of our world is the ocean, which changeable nature has always fascinated people. But its essence stays hidden from us.
The phyiscal content can be presicely defined. It was standardised by modern commerce. As a container it conquered the world and changed it like no other invention of the 21. Century. For the citizen of the great harbour cities of the world it became a daily sight.
What is inside all those countless containers?
What happenes to the ships and their cargo when they vanish behind the horizon?
They journey of the container never ends, not once during the year. It´s a journey across the globe through the strange world of the vast ocean. It demands a heavy price. Each year over 10 000 container. Occasionally they get washed ashore as flotsam and reveal their content. Just like the five unique containers of Boxed Inside. They carry the sea to the shores of the great harbour cities.
Curious beachcombers can explore their content and discover the oceans vastness, its great depth, its recurring waves and powerful storms.
