Messages From a Box - by Vincent J. Tomeo

S e p t e m b e r  1 6 ,  2 0 1 2

M e s s a g e s  F r o m  A  B o x


A graphic designer occupies Wall Street
What can an artist do with a cardboard box occupying Wall Street?
He can put things into the box
He can think outside the box
The box can become a work of art
The box can become a sign of protest
He can occupy the box
He can announce to the world they too can occupy a box

On the Highline in New York City
he thinks outside the box
He now sits inside the box

WTF he occupies the box
The box is now a living museum of mix messages
View the box...
Study the box...
Walk around the box...
Tour the box...
See the artist in the box
like Paul Klee he paints simple signs that sing

This poem is dedicated to David Everitt-Carslon

#iTOMB Interactive - Where Everyone Can Sit Outside My Box and Think Outside Their Box

I Think Outside My Box (#iTOMB) has gone Interactive - enabling anyone to sit outside my box and  think outside their box, painting their thought of the moment. Given that each person works with exactly the same materials, paint and a 3"X3" piece of cardboard, I find it enlightening just how different each person's interpretation is. What makes up your box and how do you think outside of it?
