This floating replica shipping container serves to remind us of the immeasurable impact we have on our environment. Recent events such as the Fukushima disaster in Japan and locally, the Rena shipwreck continue to have environmental effects in our Pacific Ocean and impacts in the future that we are not even aware of yet.

How do we deal with the knowledge that in many cases we have not found a solution, that we do not know how to keep a lid on our fallout. The work aims to play on these questions and our responses. (This work is able to be positioned on both water and land.)
