  • Politics and Poetics of the Closed Box

    Pandora's 'box' was a jar. The container is the new Pandora. A disjunction of content and form serves as its basic principle.

    The idealism of logistics: pure operationability through meta-encoding.
    The radical freedom of images: packaging functions as a double screen, at the same time shielding off materiality, and opening up projection space.

    'All the romance of a tin can': container bashing is symptom of an anachronistic longing for substance.

    No black boxes, no containers – no consumer capitalism, no pop art, no globalization.

    The videoclips were projected from within the box. (Actually, the size of the box was mainly determined by the minimum distance necessary for the videobeamer; contingency in finding measurements like in the case of the ISO-container: its height is said to have been initially determined by the maximum height possible to cross road bridges at harbor of New Jersey/New York.) The idea was that the box tells its stories by itself through sounds and imagery. I started the action by reading a "container manifesto". Then I gave over to the box.
