GranBox, Yet Another Boîte-en-Valise

One hundred boxes in three dimensions (small, medium, large) to share and tell GranTouristas’ digital trip of summer and fall 2012. 70 people produced a series of 100 works to be put into the boxes. Boxes cost 25/50/100 euro, depending on their size. A collective and self-financed project. Also in this case, the community is the message.
