Another "surprise" box especially conceived and made for our "sound-related" series. The reflection made by If, Bwana/Al Margolis (as the two faces of the same artist) are upon the concept of communication in art. What is the role of the artist and what is the role of the spectator? Is any interpretation of art valid? Is it possible to have a direct communication between the act of creation and the act of seeing/listening?

Each boxset in this series of 50 is absolutely unique, containing different slags of sound and vision (waste pieces of sound media - but no sounding for the ear; cut pieces of paintings - made by Al Margolis himself - but "partly" speaking for the eye; blank cardboard, just to see/hear if there is a void to fill - or not). Half of the edition is assembled in Italy and the other half in the US, so you can even look at the difference (or maybe you can even listen to it?).

We listen - but do we hear? We look - but do we see?

Each box will contain a card with a personal Download Code. The customer will send us an email with the code, and we will send the WAV file of the "sounding" part of the artifact.
