Bruce Marks

The glass container is a metaphor for how fragile our identities really are, how we lock away certain aspects of ourselves and how these can only be unlocked from within.
The key that is capable of unlocking our hidden, true identity may itself be locked away, deep inside - the true self might never be revealed.
