This is the second of internal views of a box that contains light. The text is created by printing out the words and then cutting them out with a knife before dabbing paint over the top. It’s not exactly handwritten, but it creates neat text in paint.


“LIFE. Rise the next day. Light the path. SHINE. Life. Containment. Containment. Containment. Contamination.

After studying the works of Vermeer in Art History class, I decided to use this as inspiration for continuing my light in a box series, and explored the box being a room. I loved the way that Vermeer was able to capture light and shadows in his work, and attempted recreating that in this work.

Artwork damaged


The idea of creating a world inside a box was the inspiration for this work; imagining looking into a box to see light captured inside. This artwork was destroyed to create further artworks, as the board was quite heavy and was difficult to hang.
