Time box is a kinetic sculpture that aims to create a consciousness of a repetitive moment in time within a space, by filling the environment it occupies with music when the sun hits it.
Music box is the third iteration in Regina Cantu´s attempt of building time Nuomena.
With the pressing question of: How to create objects that communicate the existence of time by forcibly disconnecting from the notion of a clock?, Regina Cantú pursued her graduate thesis project Epoche.
As a derivative of this exploration, and due to her particular interest in time she created these Time Boxes. Using the undeniable significance of sunlight as a marker for a moment in time, these objects use direct sunlight on a specific spot to trigger an automated miniature mechanical orchestrina attached to a resonance box which amplifies the music played by the orchestrina.
