"Feed me"

Gloomsday

August 27, 2013, 12:00 am
Pandora’s got a box and so does the Reporter. It’s called the Gloom Box.

Handy dandy with a pair of scissors, clay, cardboard, faux fur, construction paper and some other materials (a Sharpie? You betcha), its artsy fartsy mastermind, A&C Editor Enrique Limón, embarked on his six-angled mission (four sides, a top and a bottom).

The box will be placed at the feet of its 60-foot companion during the 89th annual Zozobra. And together, the two Glooms will burn to ashes. How romantic…and cathartic, too, because all your scraps of gloom (whatever’s been peeving you, scribbled out on paper) will fuel the fire. SFR opens up its office doors, inviting the public to feed the box with their afflictions.

The Gloom Box is, as Limón so profoundly puts it, “where people can deposit their gloom, yo.” Amen.

SFR’s Gloom Box
10 am-5 pm M-F through Wednesday, Sept 4.
