In our era, an era of political, socio-economic and health crises, the frequency of violence and its occurrences are constantly increasing, as living conditions have been changed. The present work constitutes a metaphorical visualization of gender-based abuse and oppression while trying to focus on the problematic position of media on this issue. The purpose of the project is to address whether as viewers we are influenced by what the media promotes, how much contact with reality affects us - whether we are willing to face it or if it is enough to focus on the content of the "small box ”- and whether in the end the contact with reality remains unchanged by the noise of the media. The apathy of the society towards the issue of gender-based violence was an important starting point for the implementation of the work, which tries to concern the viewer and bring him face to face with reality. Would society's attitude be the same if it came into constant and direct contact with the reality of gender-based violence?
