View full project description

RISE curated a spoken word performance and designed this container as a space to express the interaction/experience between the heart and mind relating to mental health and oppression.

This shipping container is meant to explore the struggles created by oppression that cause a disconnect in the harmony of the mind and heart. The exterior to the shipping container is meant to look hardened, boxed, shell-like, to represent the impact the conditioning of society has on the two vital organs.

The interior is meant to depict the soft, tenderness and empathetic side of our human nature. Vulnerability is the platform for human existence.
