Photo Explorations

After creating my cardboard installations, I began to photograph them and discovered that the variety of surfaces created some intriguing effects when light interacted with it. 

Cardboard Discovery

As I work more and more with the cardboard, I discover so much. To be as familiar with my material as possible is a goal. I discovered the range of materials inherent in a cardboard box, such as the smooth outer liner coupled with interior fluted or "honey combed" materials. There are a variety of tones of gray and brown in the box coloring. When photographed, the cardboard has a metal like appearance which was totally unexpectant.
