A Recyclable City Of Art~Cardburg

Just when you think you've seen it all, someone comes up with something that you wish YOU'D thought of!

Welcome to Cardburg! Brought to you by the creative minds at the Cardboard Institute of Technology.

They've put together an exhibit at the Bedford Gallery in Walnut Creek, CA. It centers around racing remote controlled cars in a huge bowl-shaped track (also made of cardboard!), but the "garages" the cars are parked in, really take the show!

This one was over 14 feet tall! Can you see the car?

(click on the photos, then right click on "view image" to see them larger)

They used layer upon layer of cardboard and the packing materials you might get in a package to do all these amazing things!

These butterflies were on poly-line which was connected to the race track--every time the cars go around the track, the butterflies "fly"!

Here's the head of a 5 foot long fly

and the wings!

You can see just how large they are in this shot!
