Mark Langan

Mark Langan makes what he calls "Corrugated Art."  He takes pieces of cardboard and turns them into artwork exclusively by cutting, bending, and wrinkling the medium.  It is a particularly interesting form of repurposed artwork because the object retains more or less its original form.  The majority of repurposed art is made by putting together lots of objects so that they achieve some form or by painting over an existing paper in a book.  Langan's method is innovative because it does not involve adding anything to the cardboard.  His creations are made only through creating textures by exposing the inside layers of the cardboard, and by cutting designs in the surface.  Adding ink is not involved.
