"The vanguard of a growing underground toy movement"
"Welcome to Friendswithyou. The friends have magic powers never seen before, and are improving lives one person at a time. Share your wishes and desires with your new friends and watch, as everything you ever dreamed of becomes reality! Welcome friends into your heart and home and start living better TODAY!"
BOX is proud to present GET LUCKY an interactive installation by Friendswithyou. Sam Borkson and Arturo Sandoval combined forces in 2002 and have been slowly spreading their art around the globe ever since. Originally the FriendsWithYou characters ventured into the world as hand-sewn plush dolls that provide magic and mayhem for their owners; now they have expanded to modular wooden toys, public art installations, motion pictures and more.
The duo has been exploring the outer territories of the globe with space invasions from a San Francisco collaboration with David Choe to creating a huge doll tornado in Tokyo with fellow plush makers and artist Mumbleboy and Gaga Inc, and now they are coming home to Miami to perform the ancient rituals to help you GET LUCKY. This artist group was created with one basic concept in mind and that is to become Friends with you.
GET LUCKY is an adventure into a modern ritual that empowers us to realize the significant effect we can pose on the world and a chance to alter it to a more balanced state to achieve happiness. We will provide a quick wish response system, face to face time with god, and multiple sub gods to accommodate the aspects of our lives that we strive to better. No more wasteful prayers, no more disappointments. Get ready to experience a fast connection with the abstract being inside us all, the unification of human, animal, and nature. The "Fur Liaison" will act as a tour guide, weighing your potential and offering you an opportunity to receive the light and bring positive change to your life. * MAKE SURE TO BRING AN OFFERING AND YOU WILL BE REWARDED GREATLY!
