The unassuming meal box has become somewhat of a cultural artifact here at Green College. Yes, it's basically just a container, but it holds one of the most valuable things for us residents: good food we didn't have to make.
Here's the skinny: when we know we're going to miss the sit-down dinner, we sign up for one of these specially designed sterile containers.
The trouble is: there are far more of us than there are of them.
You can see why a hungry greenie would get more than a little frustrated when others don't return their boxes right away. When communal resources get scarce, people get crazy.
For this video (which was created for last year's final gala) I thought it’d be fun to imagine what happens to the communal boxes while in the possession of others.
(Plus, I heard rumours that the things are indestructible ... and who wouldn't want to test that?)
