The “box” form has fascinated me since I was a young man. I had made sculpture and boxes, using all kinds of found objects and graphics before I met Joseph Cornell in New York in 1957. After a 10 year correspondence, Cornell hired me as his assistant in 1965. (See my film “Cornell 1965”)  After that time I continued box making along with film. It is as though I can capture the same content in a box as in a short animated movie.
