BOXES beyond borders

Ear Sees, Eye Hears

Magdalena Pederin
Croatia 1998

This box, created by Magdalena Pederin, is actually the second box to bear its name. The original box was an interactive work that reacted to voices and other sounds around it with green and red LED diodes. The original box was unfortunately stolen, but when asked about her opinion on the situation Magdalena responded calmly. She said that the individual who took the work considered it a good one. She then suggested creating a new version of the box out of plexiglass, which became the box featured here.
