the boxer, 2009

wood, aluminum, urethane plastic, custom mechanics and electronics

7” w x 14 3/8” h x 7” d

mechanical design: Colin Harry

edition of 6, 1 A/P

The boxer references the white cube. It is a self contained sculpture. Lifting the lid off the box reveals the boxer within the box. When the viewer pushes the switch on the top of the box, the boxer blindly strikes out and performs a five minute boxing routine in which the viewer is the opponent.
