OVERLOOKED

Overlooked in the midst of global chaos, loss of life, uncertainty and pet-owner separation anxiety, is the archaic, hard-to-operate machine that produces those little Wax Soda Pop Bottles. Evolution has narrowed things down to just one remaining machine. It can only be run three hours at a time, then has to be unplugged to cool and rest. The room housing the machine was declared a World Heritage Site by the United Nations in 1992.

That room is located in a paper house. Next to an elephant farm. One floor above a Robot Boxing Ring. 30,000 miles beneath the sea.

IN JAPAN.
