The theme song of TV show Weeds plays in the background of the Little Boxes installation project video, bringing to mind the suburban predicament of prepackaged people who are all the same and never step outside of their bubbles.

Different people are projected onto boxes as visualized by artist Bego M. Santiago, and even though they are all individuals who can move around on their own, they behave with a united mindset, always following the crowd.

An added element is the interaction between the artwork and the viewer. When someone approaches the little boxes, the projected people stare up timidly, as the viewer walks past, the people start screaming and running away, deathly afraid of anything outside their comfort zone.
