About

"Something in a Box" gives the opportunity to replay on another scale — 10,2 x 15,2 cm — the measurements of the card — here 62 — that were distributed about fourty years ago. We are confronted with a box made of walnut wood, containing 62 index cards. Each card of Something in a Box proposes a different statement by Robert Barry — 62 Statements. The first one introduces the 61 following: SOMETHING THAT ... and then 61 statements that are supposed to define SOMETHING, the essence of which remains irrevocably unknown. Reading this new text by Robert Barry won't change that.
