On the top floor of a semi-occupied office building, situated in the industrial zone of Guatemala City, eight boxes of residual cardboard were made and installed, separated from each other at equal distances. Eight chairs were placed next to these boxes.
A public offer for work was then made, asking for people willing to remain seated inside the boxes for four hours, receiving 100 quetyals, about $9. After receiving a considerable response from the workers, they werer placed in the boxes at noon and came out at three o’clock, an hour earlier than the planned schedule due to the excruciating heat. The public was unable to see the workers when they were placed in the boxes.
