Currently I am in a special Exhibition involving cardboard. The exhibition is called Discardboard and it is taking place at the Forest Centre Plus art space in Edinburgh. In total 40 artists are exhibiting work and I am presenting Story Box – a comic book made out of cardboard.
Story Box is an experiment in taking comic books away from the page and the digital and presenting them as a physical object. Cardboard seemed like the perfect medium to do this. It is customisable, durable and cheap.
I developed a 4 page story that could be read in any order. The content of the story reflected the experimental nature of the Story Box comic book. The story involved a young boy who could not communicate.
The exhibition will be held on 17 – 26 January at Forest Centre Plus, 38 Castle Terrace, Edinburgh, EH3 9SJ.
