'the new box || 20 things' is a project surrounding the concept of taking an object and finding 20 different uses for said object, other than its intended use. I chose a box as my object. I decided to create the concept behind the idea of the new box as a statement to the limitations and constrictions that society imposes on culture.
I centered "the new box" around three central ideas:
conform, convert and control. Inspired by Joseph Kosuth's work "One and Three Chairs" and the idea of using text to convey a statement, "the new box" was created with a minimalist theme.
Current plans for the project include a physical installation that would allow the viewer to inhabit the physical space that embodies the ideas of "convert," "conform" and "control."
