I am an Air of Box. I have a certain air of mystery due to my stony features.
Masanobu Ando's time spent studying Buddhism holds a deep influence over his work. He came up with the concept of "Box of Air" to represent a sacred space within a Japanese home, and we began to explore this concept as part of a collaborative process. The Buddhist philosophy of dualism describes a two-part reality, so naturally, we created the "Box of Air's" counterpart, "Air of Box". Since "Box of Air" is meant to depict an indoor space within the home, our collaboration piece is the opposite – a hollow ceramic box that represents the outside world. The shadowy, craggy sides of the simple cube sculpture convey a sense of mystery and solemn beauty.
