The Rehoboth Box, for Ben (2009 & 2013). This piece fell apart during the move. I fixed it today. Not with hot glue this time. Feeling grateful for my documentation.
Description: art, a shadow box frame. Behind a panel of glass sit three bottles of thick vintage glass, one containing embers, one containing beach pebbles and sand, one containing rolled up letters, red yarn, a partly burned stick of incense, and a small cowrie-type shell eroded to a cross-section. There is mollusk shell and a small piece of coral sitting between the second and third bottles. Behind the assemblage, a map of Lewes is mounted beneath a letter obscured with white paint. Three subsequent photos move in for detail.
