GET LUCKY INTERACTIVE INSTALLATION

by FriendsWithYou in Miami
Posted by Gestalten—08/2004

BOX is proud to present GET LUCKY, an interactive installation by FriendsWithYou.

Sam Borkson and Arturo Sandoval combined forces in 2002 and have been slowly spreading   their art around the globe ever since. Originally the FriendsWithYou characters ventured into the world as hand-sewn plush dolls that provide magic and mayhem for their owners; now they have expanded to modular wooden toys, public art installations, motion pictures and more.

Here's how FriendsWithYou describe the show:

"GET LUCKY is an adventure into a modern ritual that empowers us to realize the significant effect we can pose on the world and a chance to alter it to a more balanced state to achieve happiness. We will provide a quick wish response system, face to face time with god and multiple sub gods to accommodate the aspects of our lives that we strive to better. No more wasteful prayers, no more disappointments. Get ready to experience a fast connection with the abstract being inside us all, the unification of human, animal, and nature. The "Fur Liaison" (pictured at left) will act as a tour guide, weighing your potential and offering you an opportunity to receive the light and bring positive change to your life. MAKE SURE TO BRING AN OFFERING AND YOU WILL BE REWARDED GREATLY!"
