Glamour Box is an object in relation to the previous wallgraphics and installations in space with unfixed glimmerpigments. First it seems to be a simple wooden box with a miniature – installation in space inside.
There are the letterings glamour composed of loose glimmerpigments. The mirror under the cover makes possible to read one of the mirror-inverted lettering. It was the idea of a portable miniature-installation. Through the transport the pigments trickle away; the glamour falls off.
