Loose Minds in a Box was a collaborative work that explores the basic concept of the box. The box is a metaphor for the physical, social, political or psychological constraints that we and/or others place upon us. The box also represents a sense of place in the realm of the virtual as well as in our sub-conscience. With the aid of performance artists, electro-acoustic musicians/composers, virtual reality and motion capture artists/technologists and others. We looked at many of the numerous representations the box encompasses.
