CARGO is an installation that aims to broaden our perspective of mundane products. It is a research project focused on the complex system of transported goods around the globe - that fundamentally affect our way of life. CARGO proposes a new made in label, which is the object itself. The products of the installation were designed to be the carriers of their own story. They reveal the journey of two representatives of Iceland, aluminium and fish, across boarders and continents to their destination. At the same time they objectify the complex mechanisms of consumerism.
