Artist Chris Gilmour has chosen a simple but meaningful material for his work, a corrugated cardboard. According to Chris why he is attracted by cardboard is that, although it can be an expensive material, people fail to notice it and just throw it away when buying an object.
Corrugated cardboard is usually employed to pack and ship the artist’s work, rather than physically representing the oeuvre itself (the container, in this case, becomes the content). Even more interesting is the gap between the cheap, discarded material and the height of the final output.
