SPOLIER ALERT! If you bid for a box and won and you don't want to see what's inside, hit the little x in the corner now!!
Each week, a decorated matchbox with a tiny present hidden inside is left by a girl (and sometimes willing friends) somewhere in her travels. It's a random act of semi-artistic kindness aimed at disrupting someone's day in a tiny but positive way. That's if they dare to pick it up...
The exhibition was a sell-out yay!! Was stoked that people bid up to $50 for boxes they wanted very badly - the tuxedo and the sprinkles box (my two faves) proving the most popular of the night. The day of the exhibition I made tiny cupcakes with lemon icing and sprinkles to scatter throughout the space for the night. The leftover ones got left in the kitchen in the mad flurry and were devoured by ants, not the nicest thing to discover the next morning. The show was fun, I've been battling this ambiguous illness for the past week so it was a little trying at times to get up (there were nearly tears at the install..) and to stay standing upright at the opening (even with no alcohol allowed for this medicated bunny) but it did and I'm glad.
Many many thanks to Tony and Dan from The Wall for giving me the space for the night and so much encouragement!! Thank you to everyone who came along and appreciated the tiny boxes and congrats to Lee Tran, Myles, Katie, Jess, Brett, Sean and Tony for winning their bids! I'm always overwhelmed by how much people like the project, it definitely makes me want to go on for a very long time. There was some exciting whispers about the upcoming Creative Sydney event in Winter. So curious to know more.
Here are some shaky pictures of the mounted boxes.. taken in a poorly lit hurry as Japanese across the road beckoned, the one on the left is a miniature chocolate box.
And so with the night over, everything got packed in a box and taken home (I snitched a poster with my name on it!) and it was back to bed.
We're moving studios to a bigger and better place! Well it's really just the room across the hall, but it is at least two times bigger, I'm going to get my own window and we're going to have a balcony! Now I have to clean up the millions of hundreds and thousands I've dropped on the floor. Enjoy your weekends.
