50 hand-made boxes containing samples of Nizhny Novgorod were given to passengers on the 9AM Moscow bound train. The project was sponsored by the National Center for Contemporary Art, Nizhny Novgorod and CEC ArtsLink. Russian parcel boxes, hand-stenciled with a Deer- symbol of Nizhny, were fit with pine cones, water, soil, poetry, slogans, keys to the city, air samples, matches, chocolates, tea bags and condoms. The boxes reached many parts of Russia, Europe, and even North America.
