Description/Abstract

Artist Statement

The Viewing Box is a wooden handheld box to view 35mm art history slides. After finding a large trash bag full of art history slides, I wanted to enjoy viewing the slides without spending a lot of money on a projector. I was inspired by the view master and movie viewer toys from my childhood. The box was constructed using finger joints, a clear lens, and repurposed coat rack. It's painted and mod podged with images and text to give it a distressed antique finish. The slides are held in a wooded holder for easy viewing. The Viewing Box was created in the ARTS 429 Wood Studio/Furniture Design, Summer 2019 semester.
