The Black Box

The Black Box and related works was begun in response to the Maylasian Flight 370, which disappeared in 2014, provoking a massive search effort for it and the 'black box, which was supposed to explain everything; to make the mystery go away. I quickly realized that I could construct my own Black Box composed of a stack of 239 sheets of tar paper (one for all of the people lost). On each of these, I worked with an iconic image from the three major world religions, each of them offering a different explanation.
