The Lighthouse

This oak box was modified for a work provoked by Poe's short test 'The Lighthouse' and Jeanette Winterson's wonderful novel 'Lighthousekeeping' which interweaves Darwinian concerns within a layered narrative about storytelling.

The piece contains hardwood trays that hold glass microscope slides. A hinged lid and front flap allows access to the trays/slides.The lighthouse style structure is a USB which holds Poe's short story and lights up once connected to a computer.

Intrigued by the possibilities of Box Art as a student, Robert was introduced to this artistic community in 1995 by a travelling exhibition entitled "Worlds in a Box". Fifteen years later, inspired by two works of literature, he began creating works of his own as a response to the rich spatial imagery and descriptions of place and object found in prose.
