Semi-transparent Thinking Box on Thin Strip of Sand, 1999




Thinking Boxes Thinking Boxes are small spaces, built to the size of the user. They create a situation of perfect privacy from the surrounding environment. The first Thinking Boxes were conceived for people who live in big cities, where often overwhelmed by the demands of a busy life one longs for a place to retreat from the outside world, or from other people. Sometimes only for a few minutes, sometimes for entire hours, to regain focus, to think, to meditate. Thinking Boxes are perfectly white boxes, constructed of five panels of 3/4" plywood. Three of the interior walls each have a small square platform. The platform opposite the door is for sitting and contemplating the horizon line (when open), the other two platforms are respectively one for sitting and one for writing. Thinking Boxes are mobile and can be placed outdoors, where it is possible to create a perfectly private space in an infinitely vast landscape, or in a remote wilderness. They can be taken apart at any time and transported to any site where they may be needed. Edition of 10
