Egg Box

Pressure StudiosPosted by josefin May 26, 2010 11:44

Brief & Rules

From any recycled material, build a sturdy box 120cm3 by 120cm3. Place a hole in the top of the box, so that when you face it, the hole is in the far right corner. This hole must be precisely 7x7 centimeters. This hole will be known as The Rabbit Hole. Place another hole in the front of the box so that when you face it, the hole appears in the lower left corner. As with The Rabbit Hole this one must be precisely 7x7 centimeters. Design and construct the interior of the box, using any recycled materials, so that when you place an egg in The Rabbit Hole, it rolls out the hole on the face of the box, unbroken, precisely one minute later. In effect the interior architecture of the box is the physical expression time designed as that it will control the "experience" of the egg over the course of one minute. There may be NO cushions on the outside of the "exit hole" or anywhere near it which would mitigate the speed of the arriving egg. Your interior design will therefore need to slow the egg's speed over time to avoid the Humpty Dumpty effect.

Outcome

AN EXPERIENCE DESIGNED EGG BOX DESIGNED BY VIJAI MAIA & JOSEFIN VARGĂ–. A GAME, WHERE THE PARTICIPANTS GET 1 MIN TO DROP THE EGG INTO THE BOX, PASS IT THROUGH THE NUMBERED HOLES AND THEN POP IT OUT THROUGH THE FINAL HOLE! NOT AS EASY AS IT LOOKS!
