Bartek Elsner’s Cardboard Sculptures

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Berlin-based artist and designer Bartek Elsner creates sculptures from cardboard, sparking a sense of whimsy with the often forgotten and ubiquitous material. Elsner’s public installations, which have ranged from fireplaces to enormous boom boxes, make use of a medium often found littering the streets of major cities. In one of his most detailed pieces — an anatomical rendering of a heart supported by a thin rod, as if floating — the dull cardboard is cut in a prismatic style reminiscent of a crystal. Take a look at some of Elsner’s recent works below.
