The Condom Box Project

In 1988, safe sex practices , as they relate to HIV, were still a taboo topic. The general election was underway, when I created "Political Condom Boxes" for Brian and Mila Mulroney , Ed Broadbent and John Turner. The Vancouver Sun picked up on my work and published a story about my political condom boxes. I believe I was the first to have designed condom boxes to speak about safe sex practices.
I also did a series of Celebrity Condom Boxes, for people such as Elton John, John Baldry and Svend Robinson, to name a few.
In 2010 the pope said it was ok for catholics to use condoms,so I thought it was a good time to create a "Pope's Condom Box" which currently is in a travelling exhibition BC in a Box -The Edge of Here sponsored by The BC Potter's Guild.
