A cup is a container. A shipping container is a container. The social system is also a kind of container. However, a human being could also be a container, and the thought of people is also a container. This site-specific-created film is developed from the concept of a container. Containers are used to hold things. When we put the amorphous, transparent, or flowing thing into the container, they become stable temporarily. If the content in the container is fixed, the container loses its openness immediately. The flowing things are stagnating. We are all born from a contained structure and become a human with a body that has a heart and brain inside. Similarly, we are stuck in the institutional structure step by step and are refrained by the frames of our world.

Le Havre is a port city with the highest container traffic in France. The container is the link to the world by global trade. Containers define the size and the scale in modern life, and the social system determines the way people think; another container. When the social system appears unchanged, many social issues surface, and people feel suffocated. I try to find the energy to make things flow again, and I am sure this motive is inside many of our minds. Everyone has the potential to change a fixed container into an energetic pump. People could bring passion to social influence. When the moving body flows through the scene under the camera, it could be a guide that leads us to retrieve the image of pulsating again.
