I just love the idea of a self propelled canoe with legs that I wouldn’t have to paddle and that could make its way up the river but also come out on dry ground when necessary.  Wouldn’t that be great? All I would have to do is steer.  So this box tries to fulfill that need while still making a statement about how mixed up and confusing modern life can be.  The bird/fish figure (it has bird legs and feet) is quite clear on his direction and has good control of where he is going.  But at the same time he is confused about who and what he is.
