"The containers started to take on more meanings than I expected. It was a way tounderstand a list of global inequities. A chance for me to think and talk about thefears and anxieties I feel about economic fragility and social inequality, the morbid and devastating exploitation of natural resources that is necessarily linked to new, explicit forms of labor exploitation. A chance to signal the cracks I see as a failure onthe point of collapse."

"The relationship between containers and humanity haunted me for years. Forexample, containers seemed to suggest the tough shell we build over the course of our lives to be able to live in society, but also, at the same time, an inaccessible interiority, one that could be fragile, or simply empty."

"If it were a person, I suspect capitalism would be someone who wants to go unnoticed, hidden behind shop windows full of objects. The ideology of capitalism makes us think that having things we don't need can set us free, but in reality, it is a liberty that withers before the disastrous ecocide of resources, that isolates us further and further from each other."

"COVID-19 strips down what lies within the container. In Colombia, it reveals a fragile healthcare system, neglected and poorly managed for decades, one that in "normal" times was already near collapse. Suddenly, in the end, the disaster came all at once. As many, many people, in their own way, had imagined it would, the shipwreck finally came true, and right now the world has been left adrift."
