Cuboid: Last Word | Polaroid in PLACE


This particular exhibition shows a Cuboid retrospective cataloguing the previous interventions held in both Edinburgh and Belfast. Former occupations include a confessional booth, a Wi-fi snooping station, a sleeping shelter, street party box and a make-up booth. The most recent of these being the 'Vanity Box', a booth designed to assimilate with the native subcultures of goth, punk and indie kids outside Belfast's City Hall in June.

The Cuboid is designed to be an adaptable prop, a foreign piece of street architecture providing an alternative mode of occupation within a public space. American artist Oscar Tuazon describes the Cuboid as 'creating an unpredictable social experiment'. The physical enclosure allows a private place to be available to members of the public. The strength of resembling a common piece of street architecture such as a coffee kiosk, a builder's work-hut or public toilet enables the intervention to disguise its particular function.
