Bon Voyage is a series of 6 kinetic music boxes. It is a joyful interpretation of iconic literary pieces and proverbs dealing with the themes of voyage, loss and memory. Each suitcase hosts a motorized puppet and plays music. The baggage was salvaged over the years from the street and occasionally purchased in thrift stores. The music was sourced from musical greeting cards.
