The Lightbox Quote Project

Personal Projects

For the past year or so I’ve been using an A4 Lightbox to put statements on which I display in my living room window facing onto the street. Think of it like an analogue status update.

Many passers-by have commented on the statements and it’s become a bit of a social duty to keep them going.
If I don’t replace them often enough, people ask me what the next one will say.

The statements are not themed at all. Sometimes they are political, sometimes motivational; thought-provoking; song lyrics or just gobble-di-gook. Whatever is on my mind really. The challenge is fitting the statement into the confined space of the Lightbox. It’s a bit like the original Twitter update or old school text messages where you could only use 140 characters.

With the current lockdown in place due to the Coronavirus outbreak, less people are out and about to see the messages which is a shame. After re-reading the incredibly inspirational book: ‘Make It Now’ by Anthony Burrill I thought of ways I could do something to bring these messages to more people.
