We love people with a playful attitude and energy. So we honour Wayne White way too late on this site. He should have been the first post! His work is a fusion of puppetry, cartoons, sculpture and painting. He worked as a designer for film and television (remember Pee-wee’s Playhouse?). His cardboard sculptures are what […]
I found out about a group exhibition named Elevated Corrugated in San Francisco at The Museum of Craft and Design when visiting cardboard artist Kiel Johnson. It features some works that I really wanted to see in real life! Click to enlarge! I guess the curator (Marc D’estout) had some of the same problems as […]
I heard someone say the Burning Man Festival is a new World Wonder. Incredible! Something with the motto “leave no trace” is now becoming a part of a list of things that only wanted to leave their trace.

Well, that was fun, we organised the first official Amsterdam Cardboard Robot Capture The Flag Event. The flag of course being the baby-bot. Inspired by earlier Robot Battles we wanted to create something like that in Amsterdam. Next time we need a bigger location, and we’ll invite more people… The passers-by in the Westerpark where […]
Pepakura is a software tool that makes it easier to make foldout models out of 3d creation software models. Ofcourse this software is from Japan (free to play with, $35 to use fully). There’s some beautiful examples online. Sculptors are trying out computer generated 3d models and then want to bring their onscreen designs back […]

This Giant Cardboard Camera isn’t only beautiful, it also works! Kiel Johnson’s cardboard sculpture of a twin lens reflex camera is made strictly from cardboard, hot glue, and tape. You can find some pictures […]
