On Hamdan Street right behind Marks and Spencer is a shop called Yusuf Metal Boxes. He is probably the only shop still in business that still sells the now out of fashion tin dowry boxes. I only intended to visit the shop to get inspiration but ended up falling in love with a small hammered steel box. It’s not a dowry box (their dowry boxes are too big and busy), but I thought that it will be the perfect vessel to present the projects in.
I’m spraypainting it into a solid red color, and I will soon begin experimenting with the installation.
