While waiting for Coke Wisdom O'Neal's new show to open next month, it seems like a good time to take a look at his Box Series, begun in 2005. This crossover body of work can be considered sculpture, performance and photography. O'Neal creates a huge wooden box that acts as a larger-than-life shadow box for participants who create a narrative. Given the size and scope, no digital manipulation is required, although viewers may be forgiven if they mistake the people for tiny models at first.
