In order to view the unattainable, what is beyond reach, we must become voyeurs. Forbidden sites are concealed or guarded at their point of entry to protect the precious elements within, to deter the human gaze, and to grant its rite of passage.
We all have secret spaces.
The box becomes a private museum for the objects of our desire, a place of miniatures and curiosities; the camera obscura, a portal to another world. Time and space become layered, then collapse and so reveal, through the illusions of smoke and mirrors.
