Oil on Masonite
I saw this today on BoingBoing and just couldn't get it out of my head.
It's a Mystery Box, a sealed cardboard box with a big question mark on it, from Lou Tannen's Magic store in New York.
J.J. Abrams, the producer, director and screenwriter behind Alias, Lost, Mission Impossible III, and the upcoming Cloverfield has one.
He has this to say about it:
"It represents infinite possibility; it represents hope; it represents potential. . . mystery is the catalyst for imagination. . . maybe there are times where mystery is more important than knowledge."
