Los Angeles-based artist Matt Johnson's piece for Desert X 2023 titled Sleeping Figure situates a cubist rendition of a sleeping figure made with shipping containers between two of Southern California's main distribution arteries—a railway and the 10 Freeway. Using actual shipping containers and conceived around the time when the Suez Canal was blocked for six days by a container ship in March 2021, Sleeping Figure comments on a global supply chain in distress.
