The box format has the duel capacity to elevate the mundane objects they contain and also to organize them in visual terms

 

About his work Frank has stated, “I have a lifetime interest in old fashioned and idiosyncratic museums, this combined with an insatiable appetite for collecting are the main passions that influence the work I create”.
