While studying landscape architecture in Japan I learned that many Japanese gardens are only meant to be viewed through a building that acts as a framing device. Looking for a reason to build a mobile unit that would similarly frame the landscape, I created a cardboard version large enough for two people to occupy, yet manageable enough to be easily moved. With text printed on the box that made it appear as if it once contained parts for NASA's Kepler mission (a satellite searching for habitable planets) I shot a short film in which a teenage couple finds and uses the discarded box as a means for exploring their own earthly habitat of Los Angeles.
