BOX2

BOX2 is another exploratory collaboration, building on the experience and learning of The BOX, developing new approaches to working together remotely during Spring and Summer 2020.

Gillian initiated the process and set a new brief for the other four artists who participated.

Brief
‘In response to the first iteration of The BOX, let’s try some different approaches to mix it up a bit. I propose that we make contributions to BOX2 that are about actively adding to or building onto what comes before, while staying with our individual interests and obsessions. And share during the process too.’ 

Stage 1: Gillian
Fabricate or prepare a box that creates a context for the other artists to respond to. Document with text, photographs and/or video.
Deliver BOX2 to next artist. 

Stage 2: Sarah
Make something to go in BOX2 in any media that responds to it. The only stipulation is that something can be added or attached to it by the next artist. Document with text, photographs and/or video.
Deliver BOX2 to next artist. 

Stage 3: Kate
Change significantly how Sarah’s object fits inside or interacts with BOX2. Deliver BOX2 to next artist. 

Stage 4: Mandy
Use colour in any media to transform or distort in some way the three dimensionality of BOX2, and its contents. Document with text, photographs and/or video. 
Deliver BOX2 to next artist. 

Stage 5: Clee
Give BOX2 an interactive element in any media or form. Document with text, photographs and/or video.  
Return BOX2 to first artist. 

Stage 6: Gillian
Produce a digital interpretation for BOX2
