Six-panel folding screen showing the side view of used shipping containers. Each side of the screen shows a container from a different shipping company, with the company logo painted over like on reused containers. Referring to the »Four Asian Tigers« (Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore and South Korea), this screen shows containers from the Hong Kong shipping company »Orient Overseas Container Line – OOCL« and the Taiwanese shipping company »Evergreen Marine«. 
The standard size of the container is scaled down to the dimensions of an antique asian folding screen.
