The journey of the backpack is an inquiry of function, especially when an object reaches the inability to fulfill what it was intended for.

Through the exploration the backpack was filled with 8kg of concrete, then traveled by plane to homes in Austria and Scotland. It found ways to communicate and interact with strangers through letters and a CV. Finally it was made immobile through an additional 30kg of concrete and locked up in the Art School during a global pandemic with its next move pending and unpredictable.
