As a frequent traveler I am used to live with and out of a suitcase. I am moving with a mobile studio in a suitcase.
The suitcase becomes a box to be unfolded and to be used, to be engaged with, to play. As a routine and a ritual.
The objects in the box are seeking attention, concealed in the closed box, and enforcing the beholder to unfold, to reveal.
Desire drives process.
We place ourselves into a relationship with objects around us. We believe we decide how we pay more or less attention, We think we control what is precious and what is trash.
The Object-Box is performing.
This is my contribution to OCA SHOWCASE Open Call, October 2018
