An object acts as an effect in itself. The effect is not confined within the small ring box, but spreads far. It fills in a larger space and influences observers. The effect of an object resembles scent, because it is neither direct nor concrete. The scent flows into the air and discretely makes contact.

For this RCA / Galerie Marzee project all students got an off-the-shelf jeweller’s ring box. It was up to the students what to do with it, where you take it… there was only one rule : everything should happen inside the box, the students could not change the exterior in any way. And the box must be wrapped in an A4 size piece of paper [or similar material] that doubles as an ideas worksheet summarizing in text and images the students’ journey towards the piece contained in the box.
