I love this guy's photography. The boxes are particularly cool.

Found Chris Gilmour through boingboing.net. He makes cardboard sculptures. Most of them are life-size and really impressive.

They're impressive, but I'm not sure I get the artistic merit of making exact replicas of things out of cardboard.

QUOTE
The work of Chris Gilmour provokes surprise and amazement beyond what could appear to be a mere process of reproduction. In returning to the value of making and strongly emphasising it, these works reveal a process of understanding that lets us see everyday reality with new awareness and appreciation. This practice avoids a withdrawal into the limbo of craft, and implies an intimate and profound quest towards the reason of things.


I don't know about that.

i suppose that he reckons that the fact we are so impressed by his replicas, will bring us a renewed appreciation of the craft that goes into the objects that he is mimicking, despite their everydayness. i reckon that people are more likely to say 'nice' and not bother thinking. like me...

Now that's a work of art!



This one looks like a prop from 'The Science of Sleep'

It also looks a bit shoddily made - I'll only be impressed if it's fully functioning.

I like. And I do appreciate the craft. Just think, he probably had to take apart & put together the real objects to be able to recreate them like this. He now knows a lot more than most how everyday things work. You can't take life & its trappings for granted.

That's a very good way of putting it, these seem more craft than art to me.

My brother used to spend hours taking electrical items apart and then reassembling them when he was a child. I'm not sure it gave him a greater insight into the everyday, but I'm sure it helped in making him the academic superstar he turned out to be - it certainly didn't help his social life.

I see it as a commentary on the disposable nature of modern technology.

Or a waste of cardboard, the box.
