More than just a cardboard box

First year Bachelor of Digital Media students at Griffith University have created sculptures out of cardboard as part of their Visual Strategies course. The cardboard sculptures are scattered across the campus and reflect thoughts of consumerism, big business monopolies and our environment, each year this outdoor exhibition provides staff and students at the university with something new and fascinating to see.

I wish I could tell you more about each artwork and the brief that inspired each creation but I didn’t think that far ahead. Even without all the details, the thought and skill that goes into creating each artwork has to be admired, who would have thought that brown, corrugated cardboard could be so interesting.

    Those are great and I love the environmental theme! When I was little, my favorite toy was the cardboard box that the refrigerator came in because my mom turned it into a playhouse. I never thought to do anything like this with it though!

      LOL! Boxes make great cubby houses and hiding spots, I never thought to do anything creative with them either except maybe to draw windows and curtains on the outside πŸ™‚
