Each cube is situated within specific environments, the beach, the forest, the desert and the city. Confined inside are elements such as fire, smoke, light and water. These forces of nature have the capacity for great change, growth and destruction and yet they are still able to be controlled by humanity. Even they have their limits. These elements combined with their settings represent aspects of psychological freedom. If we are able to think outside the box, to break the glass that surrounds us perhaps we could achieve true liberation and happiness.

There also seems to be clear links with Buddhism and Thai culture, during a point when many young Thais are questioning their identity as a negotiation between tradition and modernity.
