Sets for a film I'll never make

Daniel Agdag, a Melbourne based artist and filmmaker, is presenting his first solo show, “Sets for a Film I’ll Never Make”. A playful nod to his short career as an animator, “Sets for a film…” presents a meticulous industrial world of his own imagining. The unassuming use of boxboard as a medium belies an elaborate world of transmission and communication that preserves the incessant redundancies of the modern industrial world. His short films have screened worldwide, and garnered a Dendy Award and an AFI nomination. His work has been described as architectural in form, whimsical in nature and inconceivably intricate.

This new series of work features a number of his structural experiments which he refers to simply as “sketching with cardboard”. Each work is created without detailed plans or drawings and are improvised as he works. I want to live in a world made by this guy.

(And sets from a film he *did* make.)

Wow. I had heard about these cardboard sculptures in various places online over the past few days, but I hadn't looked at the images until now. Utterly amazing and full of character. Thanks for posting.

My wrist looks just looking at those.

They're beautiful.
