The idea:
The idea was to have white cubes with enclosed views randomly positioned in the landscape.

Land Art photo installation:
This was a pilot land-art project that involved building only one box.

Fist stage:
Six photos were taken from a point in the landscape, which was to become the centre of the future box.

Taking Photos:
Photos were taken pointing the camera: up, down, east, west, north and south.

Second stage:
Once developed, photos were printed on square panels and assembled at the same physical location where they were taken.

Assembling the box:
All photos were facing inwards, pointing to the spot from which they were taken.

Dragon fly view:
That means that a dragon fly with a night vision, if it happened to be in the centre of the cube, would see images of the same surrounding as without the box.

Visual appearance:
The white box in a landscape promotes certain aesthetic attributes, but it does not help to understand the idea.

Mental Construction:
This project can only be understood by creating mental images based on the concept of its creation.

Photography, Performance, Land Art:
Photo Box is an analytical project in the medium of photography with elements of performance and land art.

Encapsulated view:
To the viewer it appears as a white box (sculpture) installed in an open environment.
The photographs are encapsulated within the box.
