.#iThinkOutsideMyBox (#iTOMB) was born on 6 October, 2011 in Zuccotti Park, Manhattan as a performance art and community outreach vehicle supporting Occupy Wall Street.
As a solution to signs he had made being constantly blown away or rained upon in the park, artist David Everitt-Carlson settled upon using a box instead of flat cardboard whilst sitting inside and painting activist communications. #iTOMB was first featured in the Wall Street Journal on 7 October, 2011.
Over the course of the next 48 days, he painted all of 12 panels, each with a different theme and began to branch out into individual smaller signs that could be used by other participants for a small donation.
On 21 July, 2012 David's ITOMB performance art was featured at the Munch Gallery in New York as part of "Up Against It", a show depicting societal struggle.
Today #iTOMB is a global interactive studio and gallery that encourages self expression by 'engaging the public in public art' and continues in New York on The High Line at 22nd St. Contact here for more information.
