Cardboard represents the ordinary: as an artist my purpose is to have a perspective on that – to paraphrase Italo Calvino; the artists job is to be an unconventional observer of the ordinary. It’s that perspective that inspired me.
The thing with cardboard is that it has history. It’s been somewhere else. Also: it’s a cheap material that gives you permission to fail . . . and in that failure is opportunity. It allows for error, spontaneity.
