Pink Intruder Unveils Gorgeous Pixelated Cardboard Pavilion in Valencia, Spain

This amazing cave-like cardboard pavilion was built from over 3,000 cardboard modules by art collective Pink Intruder and artists Miguel Arraiz and David Moreno. The pixelated structure was featured at this year’s Fallas - an annual celebration in Valencia, Spain, that concludes with the burning all of the art pieces produced during the festivities.
Pink Intruder  constructed an undulating canopy  from hexagonal corrugated cardboard boxes to represent a cave, says Miguel Arraiz García, one of the authors and founders of the collective. The structure was made from 3,000 modules stacked and connected to form stalactites and stalagmites .
The collective uses urban interventions  as a tool for generating creative debate and encouraging the public participation. Their idea for the pavilion was based on the concepts of safety and destruction, with the cave-like structure acting as a symbolic shelter. The piece is titled A Battle Is Raging Even If You’re Not Aware of It – the rage was suppressed until the end of the festival and unleashed by burning the pavilion to the ground.
