Melbourne-based artist Daniel Agdag makes astonishingly intricate cardboard sculptures of buildings, vehicles, machinery, even entire city blocks. Some of the sculptures were featured in his short animated films “Toil” and “Paper City Architects.” His sculptural work will be on display at his solo show “Sets for a Film I’ll Never Make,” October 26 to November 9 at the Off the Kerb gallery in Melbourne.
All the images seen below are made from cardboard ~ boxboard to be precise. They are cut into manageable pieces using a surgical scalpel (blade Nº.11) and assembled intuitively by hand using a plain well known brand of wood glue, without detailed plans or drawings. The process is a kin to drawing in three dimensions with cardboard.
