El Refrigerador is a sound installation contained in and around a woven plastic basket. The basket was crafted partly inside and partly outside the men's prison, Ixcotel, in Oaxaca.
The conversations with the men are woven together as a sound piece about their freedom of speech, the time they spend weaving baskets and the relevance to the time they are serving, and how making objects creates an escape from the reality inside prison.
The basket shown here was originally formatted to contain a fridge, but is also the right size to fit an adult body inside.
