VARIATIONS ON A CUBE

Part of an ongoing project which explores the relationship between people and objects, and the space that they occupy.

Storage of everyday objects is often about defining a given space for a certain object, and to give authority to the object's placement. In this instance I have worked from what is probably the most archetypal form of storage - the box.

But this box can be folded out and positioned in a number of ways to create different spaces and landscapes, a sense of space that fulfills the same function as the box. It allows you to consider and communicate your feelings about an object. Depending on where you choose to place an object, or how it interacts with the space you have created, objects and possessions can be raised up, hidden or duplicated. The mirrored surface of the brass creates a space difficult to define, appearing almost endless.
