If you want to create detailed and imaginative flying machine sculptures that look like they’re about to take flight, cardboard is hardly the material to use. Unless of course you’re Australian artist Daniel Agdag, who has been toiling away creating a series of new works each more detailed and fascinating than the next.
Agdag doesn’t use blueprints, drawings or plans, but instead chooses to work only from mind and scalpel. His amazing flying machines come together using simple sliced cardboard hinged with glue.
“The Principles of Aerodynamics” is Agdag’s first solo exhibition where his series of cardboard contraptions that portray his “ongoing pursuit of escape through the metaphor of flight” will be on display through Aug 31, 2014. If you’re in Australia, you can even catch some of his works at the Melbourne Art Fair until 17 August 2014.
Here’s a sneaky video we took of Daniel explaining his process to some interested onlookers:
And here’s a photo of Daniel with one of his marvelous cardboard creations!
