Johnnie Dady, Artist

"I set myself a short exercise: to cut and fold a large cardboard box into the form of a vespa [at real scale] that was parked outside the studio. I intended the cardboard to remain as a continuous piece so the task had to be approached by folding rather than being constructed from fragments. I wanted, if possible, to retain the identity of the box. Having managed to realise a version of the scooter I then repaired and reinstated the box to its former volume." Link here for more images.
