The memory of the Arab Spring is long replaced. It was characterized by the channeling of people's discontent via new social media that conveyed and organized a form of collective atmosphere of departure. 'outside in the box' serves as a documentation of a social space that used to have a political meaning. All the voices, which, via Twitter, formerly merged into a new social network sparked by protest and supported by technology, now fit into a small box, out of which they emerge in interference with each other. Emotions 'stored' in this form allude to the ephemerality of media attention to social history, whose memory is constantly replaced by recent events.
