BOXES beyond borders

Living Out of the Box (As a Survivor)

Rita Rivest with Beverlye Hyman Fead
USA - California 2006

Tajima. An artist and an extraordinary woman collaborate to create a box. 

Beverlye Hyman Fead, CANCER SURVIVOR and Rita Rivest, ARTIST

The theme of my box is how much happier I am today — living out of the box. For half my life, I lived within the confines of the box and when I realized I was dying inside, I moved on.

Inside the bottom of the box are names of women I admire that have chosen unusual roads for themselves. They inspired me to move away from everything I knew and start over. When I became a cancer survivor, it was then I realized I had been a survivor of sorts all my life and now I could start inspiring others.

I wrote a book and have decoupaged pieces of my book on and inside my box. My banners of survivorship and living my life in my own way, wave triumphantly from the box spurring me on. I hope they will have the same effect on any woman, young or old, who will see this box.

Rita Rivest, my friend and soul sister, has been my mentor and my muse in this project. Thank you, Rita.
