Torrance Art Museum 3320 Civic Center Drive, Torrance, CA
Cardboard that ubiquitous material that surrounds us, linking our desires via the packaging of consumer goods, keeping them safe, quenching our thirst for things is a cheap and throwaway material rarely paid any attention. But some artists grasp the amazing malleability of it its strength, its ability to be transformed. These 13 artists find ways to play with the pulped wood to invent new narratives. From replicating realistically the objects around us, to exploring structures, to humorously delighting us, they reconstruct the basic elements into fantastical pulped fictions.
