    What makes the suitcase such a sensitive object? It is a container in which emotionalities and materialities are entangled – packed or unpacked in sometimes surprising ways. The suitcase is a container into which not only objects are stuffed, but also emotions and dreams. It can be many things: a distillation of the future, an icon of mobility, a last resort, a threatening or comforting object. A very personal bond might also evolve – ‘me and my suitcase’. The emotional charges change with the kinds of journeys undertaken, a longedfor vacation, a routine commute, or a desperate escape across borders.
