WRITING BOXES

WRITING BOXES

Writing Boxes for the Novel Project at Flux Factory with co-designer Kwi Hae Kim. According to the brief issued by the arts collective Flux Factory, which acted as the curator and client for the project, a writer was to be placed into this space for one month to write a complete novel. The Writing Boxes responded to this by integrating the notion of writing and fiction into the design concept, referencing the dead letter boxes of early twentieth century espionage. The project improvised with materials gathered from arts donors. The starting goal – to provide spaces for writing as a solitary act and also as fiction and performance – was achieved with packing crates and hanging acrylic walls that acted as curtains. The writer finished 172 pages in 4 weeks. Spring 2005.
