Enchanted forests sculpted entirely from cardboard

in Inspiration / Art

If you go down to the woods today, you're sure for a big surprise. The surprise being that you might discover they're made entirely out of cardboard. That will certainly be the case if you come across the work of Paris-based sculptor and artist Eva Jospin who creates dense and enchanting forests out of a material that ultimately originates from trees.

With the brown colour and corrugated textures of cardboard perfectly imitating the common features found on trees, such as bark and winding branches, Jospin painstakingly cuts and glues the material to make multiple layers of woodland scenes that have appealing realism and depth of field. Her artworks, entitled Forests, almost make you feel lost in the woods and act as a clever reminder of the material's true origin and how we shouldn't take it for granted.
