Box of Uranus

Assemblage. Two tiers, various items. 28x20x8 cm.

Date21 November 2020

The first 7 boxes followed the classical planets, but in the spirit of my own Planetary Spheres, where I explored expanding that model to 10, the collection continues. Both the planet’s sky-god namesake and its actual cyan colour associate it with the skies.

As with all my boxes, the nature and meaning of the contents are not described as it is for the viewer to make their own relationship to the story. What can’t be conveyed with these images is the box’s scent signature, an icy mixture of camphor and mint.


Brighter by night: Reflective elements inside the lid.

Note: All feathers used in my boxes were naturally moulted.
