What's in a Box?
Overhead in the Singapore skies an electric storm bubbles and brews. At the base of the skyline enormous cranes in the shipping yards creak and groan as they swing steel containers safely to shore, stacked into a tessellated rainbow wall, resting at the end of their voyage. But what is inside each of these strong giant safes? Why boxes! Boxes within boxes within boxes! Lives packed away, stories safely stored. As we open, unlock and unpack what glorious gifts will we find? What memories will be brought to life? What secrets will be revealed and what surprises await?!
