What’s in the Box?

March 3, 2009 · Print This Article

For the sake of introduction, here’s a project that kicked off last Saturday in New York City’s Coney Island and on the Lower East Side at MWNM. The Box Game is the traveling stage of a larger artwork called ‘What’s in the Box’. In the month of March a black box will be taken to various locations throughout the United States and Canada by Lukas Geronimas and David Horvitz. At each location they will set up a game that asks people what they think is in the box.

As a sort of real life meme, this project will be interesting as it develops.  Also check out the website. It is much in the same spirit as the artist David Horvitz’s other Internet activities both on his own site and the co-curated ASDF Makes.  One can purchase editions of this work in the form of tanks of gas to help these two drive the box across North America.

The Box Game is a collaboration between Lukas Geronimas, David Horvitz, The Black Hole Space, and curators and hosts across North America
