the raw exterior of this cabinet has a plainness that is deceptive; its interior is illuminated and clad in stainless steel. despite the sense of an inner secret and trickery, the cabinet has a true function, to store archival photographic materials.
this cabinet borrows its form/size from the large format camera, playing on the notion of cabinet becoming a ‘pin hole camera’. instead of the injection and framing of an outside image by the interior of the cube, the inside stainless steel walls are illuminated by a led lights system that projects beams of light through the opening, inviting the viewer to look within.
