Recently, Box has pivoted from documentary work, focusing on the creation of a studio-based photography practice. In this evolving body of work, she uses photographs, sound, and installation to articulate her own diasporic experience, creating a syncretic space within her home, one where the Caribbean/colonial past and the urban present, the diasporic and the rooted, and multiple iterations of self — as a subject, rather than as a colonized object — can exist simultaneously, and so, be questioned, broken down, and reclaimed. Thus, in this chaos of these slippery intersections, there is a chance to weigh, and to understand, her own complicated and messy personal, ancestral and historical narratives.
