“If I draw a house balancing on one tiny piece of plank it will never fall, unless I want it to. In these own worlds you are the one to decide what reality is and what to be part of another’s consciousness.” — Nina Lindgren

Ana Serrano made Cartonlandia, another colorful conglomeration of little cardboard buildings. “Recently I’ve been working with cardboard because I find it easy to handle and manipulate, but also I like that it’s a mundane and familiar material.”

The Sky is Falling

 Annalise Rees says on her website: “The humble cardboard box in all its delightful banality and boringness is a material common to all. The magical gateway into childhood fantasies, cubby houses, castles and beyond to purely practical means of storage. Books, records, toys and forgotten memories all share this common home inside the box.”
