I chose to utilize the exhibition theme to address the box's interior shape and its contents. Upon first glance the cube form appears to completely disregard the exhibition theme, however upon further investigation and interaction, one sees the interior is a celebration of spheres. The box's cavity is created by two lathe turned hemispherical forms, which contain a plethora of multiple sized resplendent golden spheres. The glittery spheres appear gemlike and are accented by a single red cube, which mimics the box's exterior shape. In the end, I hope to create a sense of surprise and wonderment as the user opens the box to reveal an interior of golden splendor.

Red polychrome box with interior sphere box, which contains multiple sized resplendent golden orbs and a single red cube to mimic the exterior shape of the box.
