Sending a Box 1, 2, 2013


Box, disposable cameras, illustrated manual, MP3 voice manual, commemorative badge, photos, dimensions variables.

I sent a box of disposable cameras and manuals to my friends, asking them to take pictures of their daily life. And then my friends sent these items to their friends with the same instructions. Following this process, the box continued to be filled up and moved around. Prior to the opening of the exhibition, the box was returned to me and I exhibited the box, the manuals, and the photos taken by the participants. As the box left the artist’s studio and took a journey that was determined by the many participants, I wanted to convey that the work could not be made with only the artist’s intention, but required the participant’s action by making acquaintances with people.
