In November 2008, long time collaborator and good friend "Sexy" David Sanchez Burr called me up and said," YO! Come up with something solar, we have a residency in the desert." He hung up and I thought about it for a while. Although I would cite Dave as the main catalyst, Sun Boxes had already started, long before that phone call. Like a lot my pieces it's very hard to pin point the actual beginning. It seems more accurate to say there were many observations collected along the way. And then one day I woke up to find 20 solar powered speakers.
