The suitcase/toolbox has multiple compartments, that fold out as the suitcase is opened.   Each compartment is a model of a park or a nature reserve near the artists home at different times.   (The parks are in Reykjavik, New York City, San Francisco and Berkeley.)   This work was made in transit between several places over a few months period, and the suitcase functioned as a mobile studio, often being checked-in as luggage.
