There’s something magical about these handcrafted flying machines by Melbourne-based artist Daniel Agdag. While they look as if they were put together by a maniacal, detail-obsessed engineer, they still hit all the right notes of whimsy and playfulness. But perhaps what’s most impressive is that fact that these fantastical objects were meticulously put together using a humble material: cardboard.
Inspired by his mother’s move from Europe to Australia, Agdag’s creations symbolize escape, migration, and the solitude of journeys into the unknown. Agdag also creates other cardboard sculptures such as houses, instruments and roller coasters. See more of his work here.
