The idea is that the traveling screening room will be updated every year by rotating four of the exhibited films out and replacing them with four new films. Benjamin Weil, executive director of Artists Space, New York, is the artistic director of the project.

The aluminum and Perspex structure can be dissembled and assembled with considerable ease. It was designed to be able to travel the world and be re-exhibited in many different international locations. The H Box was originally exhibited in Paris at the Pompidou Center in November 2007, and is set to move to Yokohama Triennale in Yokohama, Japan next.
