Power-Up Boxes

These cool question mark lightboxes by Jonny Pollard from Proclaimers in Norfolk, England remind me of the power-up boxes from Mario Brothers.

The folks at Proclaimers put this set together for their FAQ series. The preaching team formed a panel answering frequently asked questions put forward by members of the church and public about faith, church and God.

The wooden frames were cheap and easy to assemble. Each box was made of 4 x 56 ½ cm, 4 x 59 ½ cm and 8 x 52cm lengths of 33mm “doorstop” with 8 x 8cm blocks of square timber as support in each corner of the frame. These were then covered in translucent tracing paper stapled neatly onto four sides of the cube (leaving the base uncovered and the back of the cube open for backlighting).

An A3 graphic of a large question mark printed on regular printer paper was then cut out and attached using double-sided tape to the front of each cube. These cubes were then stacked on stage, and using par-cans with different colored gels illuminated to create the desired effect.
