According to thermo-dynamic principles the difference between the inside and the outside temperature of a system must be maintained in order to prevent that the warmth slips entirely into the cold. The maximum entropy is the point where all energy is mixed into an homogenous soup. The main function of the white cube is to protect its content from this extreme finality by artificially maintaining the difference between the inside and outside. The slight opening suggest an openness to desire and its transformations. Subtly the inside slips into the outside in vice versa. But nothing can protect purity and prevent the contamination of the content.
