Melbourne-based artist Daniel Agdag has a unique way of highlighting the complexity of machines. He uses humble cardboard to create incredibly intricate sculptures that "romanticize the feeling of being alone in the sky, unsure of what adventures may come."
Agdag’s fantastic solo-vehicles and machines take inspiration from both, the artists’ own daydreams and his mother’s story of how he imagined she migrated alone from Europe to Australia, where they both now resides. The sculptures are made by combining different materials, including recycled boxboard, tracing paper, brass, nickel and for some, hand-blown glass.
Measuring an average of 25-inches, the meticulously constructed objects expose instead of hide their inner mechanisms. “All too often, the most amazing feats of human engineering are kept hidden and disguised under shiny facades or reinforced concrete,” Agdag told This is Colossal. His own feats are deeply impressive, and we’re so glad he has shared them.
