Tiny Box Project

the Mail Art of Josh Ronsen


In 2007, I asked for 25 small pieces of art, smaller than an inch squared. 49 artists submitted. The works were placed in one of two sets of 25 tiny boxes and mailed to each submitter. What wonders! What joy!
Tiny Box No.1
These boxes were published as Monk Mink Pink Punk #18. All editions went to submitters. But if you must pry (you must! you must!), here are scans of all the works. 2D jpegs do not do justice for many of these pieces. A TINY BOX was featured in the Fluxhibition #3 organized by Cecil Touchon at UT Arlington.
