When I go into the studio to work on animation, sometimes I know the next task to be performed. At other times it is an open adventure into the unknown i.e. the unconscious, which I refer to as the “underground”.
Please find an assortment of boxes here that represent a variety of work over Jordans long career. Some of this collection is available for live viewing as well.

Within these boxes the silent, still mysterious voice of the “object as being” can be heard... the objects move from external reality and correspond to an inner necessity. It is the unconscious made external, the objectification of desire.
How film, collage and boxes can be linked together. Check out this short film for an example of how images from 2 films make their way into Box and Collage work of Lawrence Jordan
