The exhibition of artworks in containers by Marina Münter was first displayed at Berg at Nordan Art in September 2017, then Art in the Park in June 2020, before being homed at The G.B.T.H. Project until the end of September 2020. This video art combines this Second Life artwork with Outgoing Cargo!, an archive film made in the 1950s for the National Association of Manufacturers in the United States. It promoted American capitalism, and introduced the viewer to ‘a steel container called a cargo van’, as a new innovation for shipping.
Coincidentally, during November 2017 two pieces of my own video art, There is No Cure for Curiosity and Future City, were shown in a shipping container as part of the Mobile Utopia conference at Lancaster University. The 2018 version included a video made at Mobile Utopia but it was never quite satisfactory, and was replaced in 2020 with additional material from Non-perishable.
Winner of the 'Mixed Reality' section of the New Media Film Festival, 2021.
