This is The Obverse Box. A limited edition of 50, custom-built, handheld LED projectors. Each projector contains Deru's album "1979", along with a short film for each song from the record. The Obverse Box is a modern-day time capsule and sculptural totem designed to honor the artifact left behind by Jackson Sonnanfeld-Arden - which originally held a small but puzzling collection of letters, photos, films, and wild ideas.
The Obverse Box comes in a one-of-a-kind hand-painted vintage wooden box and includes a unique set of ephemeral objects based on the contents of the original relic.
We have sold out of all of the pre-sale projectors. The last remaining nine will feature an edition number and signature by the artist.
Ships late summer 2014.
Excerpt from the found manuscripts of Jackson Sonnanfeld-Arden.
