“Boxes are often used to sort and separate, or merely to contain objects, I see them as opportunities to make connections, to play with the odd juxtaposition that makes a sense beyond reason, to explore multiple perspectives . . . Wherever I travel, I look for them, the more used the better—the more stories they hold.” —Patricia Goodrich
