One of the figures from Raft was used as the core of Merchandise which was itself later incorporated into Hemmed In Two

"Frustrated by the fact that his biography so heavily overdetermines the reading of his work, he created a series of sculptures in which he used cardboard to pre-emptively package the work for the viewer.  This move was relevatory for Locke's practice, as through this material he could metonymically address migration, international economics, globalisation and ideas about personal and cultural protection and projection." - Kris Kiramitsu, Curator The Norton Collection
