The Box People

An investigation into box nets gone seriously awry.


As mentioned above, what started as a project investigating the different uses of box netting systems quickly developed into an indepth look at three dimensionally mapping the human body.

How could I simplify the 3D textures of a human so they could be portrayed simply as a box, and quickly created using a net?


I photographed my parents from each angle that would be apparent were they to be a cube, and created knee high wooden 'robots', with fully poseable limbs and joints.

Each model had a selection of facial expressions that could be applied dependent on how the box person was feeling that day.
