Bartek Elsner, an artist who uses cardboard to build things far more awesome than your childhood fridge box fort, created this monstrous paper boombox for a Mini Cooper dealer in Zurich, Switzerland. What’s even more awesome is it’s powered by the car battery from a Mini parked behind the stereo.
The piece sadly won’t survive the first rain shower that comes along, but that’s seemingly half the appeal of working with a material like cardboard. Your work is fleeting and isn’t going to survive for hundreds of years in a museum. And when it’s no longer needed it can be turned into an awesome fort. Try to do that with the Venus de Milo.
