Not in a box.. !?

Not in a boxThe process : Ash makes “knots”, he gives these “knots” to individuals who agree to personalise the “not” and return it to the artist who places the piece into the collective work known as “not in a box”

Ash quote : if we had 10,000 “nots” no two would be the same- just like people- all different yet the same!”

Ash’s comments : A protest at the nonsense of labels and categories when used in relation to people? Is it a protest? An experience? A demonstration? We see ourselves and others in different ways – we portray ourselves differently. Each “not” is unique and yet it is the same in as much as it is a “not in a box”

Other’s comment : “do they all have a good side?” ; “marvellous: people identifiable only by effort and imagination” ; “Not God”
