Cardboard Flying Machines by Daniel Agdag

Melbourne-based artist Daniel Agdag’s work with a material as mundane as cardboard is nothing short of magical. He creates painstakingly intricate cardboard sculptures of unbelievably delicate and complex industrial flying machines. Agdag describes his process as ‘sketching with cardboard’,  as he makes no detailed plans or drawings of the pieces he creates.
These beautiful sculptures from the series “The Principles of Aerodynamics” are on now at MARS Gallery. The exhibition presents six fantastical machines – there are flying hot-rods and Jules Verne-style air balloons – as well as a larger hanging mobile.
