Living in the Box
Shipping crate, paper, light bulb, blankets, cardboard

Living in the box or to conform or even compromise, is not my way. It is what it is – whether it’s basic survival or working on creating an art piece, there’s a challenge. The challenge I’ve decided to take on is using words and statements to ask you to consider whether living homeless could be an art form in itself. This piece also hopes to make viewers consider the tenuous nature of security and to question the revulsion, sympathy, fear, doubt or even envy that witnessing survival outside of the box can evoke.
