EDITION
2009
By placing the body at the centre of the space, where its audible and visible influxes converge, H-Box explores the possibilities for an experience-based architecture. This kind of camera obscura is a hybrid object, both a shelter hidden from view and a place of heightened awareness, in which the body becomes a sensitive film and a hyper-sensorial receptor.

H-Box is a minimal architecture, a tribute to Jean Prouvé’s industrial design. It is composed of modules of high resistance lightweight materials, easily assembled, disassembled and transported, to travel around the world. The 6.5-metre unit designed to accommodate 10 viewers at a time could be assembled in less than twelve hours.

H-Box display videos specially made for the touring project are updated every years.

Features videos by: Alice Anderson, Yael Bartana, Sebastian Diaz Morales, Dora Garcia, Judith Kurtag, Valerie Mrejen, Shahryar Nashat and Su-Mei Tse.
