SEATTLE — The Portland-based Soul Box Project is collecting one hand-folded origami box for every victim of gunfire in the U.S. Displayed in groups of tens of thousands in public spaces around the country, the project shows people how large the impact of gun violence is by giving it physical space. Each box represents a real person, a soul, and they are created by loved ones left behind. When grouped together, the numbers become comprehensible, and people are inspired to act.
Soul Box Seattle Exhibit: 3,000 boxes are currently on display at the School of Visual Concepts through Thu, Aug 8th, 2300 Seventh Ave., Suite B, Seattle WA.
