C.O.T.I.S is the name of a fictional cult whose members travel in Freight
Containers to the sites of aircraft crashes. They carry on the
trajectory of the aircraft into the earth by burying a container. They
view a crash site as an ultimate fusion of body, technology and
territory. The interior of the orange (the colour of a black box)
container is upholstered with digitally printed material and depicts
aerial images of crash sites, with white outlines symbolising the
wreckage. The padded room is a place of contemplation where original
recordings from black boxes can be heard. The container becomes a
metaphor for the black box and its revealing contents.
