Every evening, as shops close, piles of empty cardboard boxes are put out ready to be collected, recycled and refashioned. They are carefully and un-selfconsciously packed into sculptural arrangements which enhance the streets as commuters make their way home. Their neutral exteriors give little away – what they have carried and where they have been. They blankly speak of our relationship with what we consume, as well as of our cultural and economic relationships with the rest of the world and they raise a daily question mark about what we need and what we want, and the impact of having both on the rest of the world.
