Hakoirimusume “Box Daughter” series Description:

We live in transparent boxes, creating our own space both mentally and physically, which as a result creates our own limitations; these limitations also being influenced by external factors. Women living in transparent boxes, depicting the {internal and external} {spontaneous and exogenous} limitations in modern life; some of them are comfortable existing within these limitations they create, while other believe it is too cramped. Furthermore, some believe that these limitations come from others or result from other external factors. We live in transparent boxes mentally and physically. 

(A Japanese word “箱入り娘” Hakoirimusume” / Definitions: girl who has led a sheltered life)
