artist luise valdes collected a lot of unwanted cardboard boxes for his latest installation ‘casa de karton’ or cardboard house. the project is a life-size recreation of valdes’ apartment using cardboard tape and lots of white paint. all the objects in the apartment are made from old boxes that have been cut-out and assembled into the form with a sketch-like outline for smaller details. all the boxes are whitewashed to give the space a surreal quality of a drawing that has come to life.
