This box was built to be destroyed. Every fiber of its being was formed for its undoing. In twisting the handle, the Destruction Box is to pull itself in and crush itself. This pieces is purposefully temporary and becomes an artifact of action. Form follows function is the prevailing design principal followed.

The work an artist makes becomes a reflection of themselves and part of the artist is left behind within the fabric of the piece.

Although this project did not go to plan, in the performance and action of turning the wheel, a new meaning is formed for this piece. The uncertainties within pieces bring their own important meaning and form the artist as much as the artist forms the project.
