A patron examines the contexts of a box. By matching the number on the box to the accompanying numbers on the wall, it is possible to compare and contrast the contents of a box and the manner in which these contents were interpreted by the collector/collaborator. Sometimes a connection is obvious; often it is more evocative—even opaque.
