Black Boxes is a publication inspired by flight recorders. A flight recorder is usually orange although it is referred to as a black box. It is used to capture a wide range of data; for example the altitude during a flight.

Coincidentally every single member of this collaboration had family who had to migrate to a different country. It was therefore decided that these personal stories of migration would be stored within the object, intentionally created with the use of the same visual elements of real flight recorders as they store travel records.

With this publication, you have to destroy the case before being able to reach what is contained. In relation to that, we also wanted to explore the life span of data.

Black Boxes
How long will it be able to survive before it is lost or deteriorates?

In collaboration with Bior Elliott, Lily McNally and Kezia Hessam.
