Japanese artist Monami Ohno transforms discarded Amazon boxes into elaborate cardboard sculptures! Formally trained in 3-D animation but lacking the resources to animate as often as she’d like, Ohno began experimenting with some old Amazon boxes she had lying around. Using nothing but a pair of scissors, standard box cutter, ruler, glue and masking tape, Ohno has made detailed replicas from popular movies, food, drinks and even shoes! Check out more images below.
Whimsical project by Stockholm-based creative Nina Lindgren. “Floating City” features a multitude of tiny houses built out of recycled cardboard and joined together to form a large-scale sculpture, suspended from the ceiling. See more images below.
“Miles to Empty” is Shannon Goff’s homage to her grandfather’s special edition, collector’s series, 1979 Lincoln Continental Mark V. While her grandfather’s car was metallic turquoise and white vinyl, Goff’s rendition is all white and made entirely of cardboard! The artist described the piece to us as:
“a 3D contour drawing inflated into space. This car is wrapped up in both personal and political histories. It is a critique on American society’s obsession with convenience, luxury and autonomy.”
