Description

This is the story of ten little birch boxes with a ghost-like face printed on back lit paper, a blur reminder of our forgotten dolls from our childhood. Lit by LED lights, the shining ghosts will remind us of our nightmarish and confused childhood, memories, a reflective mirror of the legends and stories we loved to hear before going to bed … and change the world.

The cubic structures are 12”x12”, lit from the inside by LED lights. They will be displayed at the Image Foundry gallery on Dupont Street.
