Archival Structure 5: FULL BRICK AND REVERSED-MAILER EXAMPLES

Mixed media, each box: 9 x 2.5 x 4.5 ", 2009.

Each brick can be turned inside-out and act as its own mailing box. The cardboard divider that separates the two compartments is unfolded and taped over the plastic windows. The box can then be addressed and sent either to me or directly to an exhibition venue. After a show closes, I again reverse the box to mailer-version and return it to its conservator/collaborator.
