Lucky Boxes

Interactive Installation

 

March 2016

 

Lucky Boxes is a set of acrylic boxes in varying sizes and solid colors; there is a 4 - inch diameter hole on the topside of each one. Viewers are encouraged to put their hands into each or any of the boxes to touch or grab whatever is inside. This piece triggers a highly personal psychological and physical experience: the psychological battle of whether or not to take a risk; the experience of having an expectation; the action of taking risks and the feelings of exploring the unseen and unknown. The sense of tactile is also a major part of this art experience, to make art using different senses is also one of my intentions for art making. The audience also becomes the “performers” of the work.
