Cardboard Cities: Dioramas by Andy Rudak
Street scenes of London, New York, Mumbai, Paris, and Tokyo created out of cardboard in collaboration with set designer Luke Aan de Wiel. The works were inspired by cliches associated with these cities such as Paris with its historic street lamps and distinctive signs. Animals were added as the focal point of the works.
I placed the animals in there as a sign of life. I loved the idea of a city with no people, there is something surreal about it, but there will always be life. The dream-like feel was, I thought, perfectly communicated by the animal and the fact the animal wasn't from that city made it an even stronger fantasy.
