For the first annual Cardboard Art Festival, I reused the bits and pieces of Intersect, a temporary site-specific public art installation, fashioning them into a giant cardboard marionette.

This stickman-like puppet is a multi-player experience, with strings that control its body, arms and legs. As part of the Society of Stickpeople series, the work explores the contrast between individual and collective action, and ideas of impermanence and control.

Recycled cardboard, recycled hammock chair crossbars, rope, string, pulleys, miscellaneous hardware

15 x 4 1/2 x 1 1/2 feet
