“There will always be more things in a closed chest that in open one. Verification is the death of the images.  Imagining will always be greater that living”.

The poetics of space

“We have altered our environment so radically that now we must alter ourselves so as to be able to exit in it”.

Nobert Wiener
Cybernetics or control and communication in animals and machines

In this project, my interest is to show what remains after the industrial process. Indestructible materials that remain unalterable with time and that in some cases we must protect from the annihilating powers that they are composed of.

The container has given solution to so many incognitos, but it is incognito in itself. The Industry has developed it as an artificial and perfectly indispensable element. The same industry seeks answers and continues developing models of containers. The most critical containers are the ones intended to accumulate aggressive or lethal products. It is the very same technique that causes them the one believed to be able to defend us against them and also seeks to confine them in safe places.
Although this is not the only sense in which directing the project, as this symbiosis between interior and exterior, and the meaning of protection or defense will attempt to combine evenly. These readings intend to provide the fullest possible relationship industry waste, contaminated areas and items in process of alteration, in a game in which the protection against the exterior or defense of the content to a dehumanized outside are signs of an extreme growth.
