plaque on front reads: Please turn off when done.

This is an interactive piece.

When the viewer approaches the box, it looks like a mirrored cube. It reflects the gallery in all directions, and the viewer sees herself in the mirrored cube.

The sign is simple: Please turn off when done. But, this is enough for anyone to understand that they are requested to flip the switch and send the piece into its second state.

When the switch is flipped in on position, a light is turned on within the mirrored box rendering the box transparent. The cube which a moment ago was reflecting all sides of the gallery now reveals an infinite interior space.

An infinite space you can wrap your arms around.
