Hugo, the cardboard sculpture

Hugo, in a way, was part labor of love, part “I’m stubborn, and it’s challenged me, so I’m going to make it work if it kills me”

I kind of wish I’d been able to make the legs move a bit better, but the do move (twitching is a movement right) and painted over the letters I’d used to distinguish the pieces from one another, but I was too caught up in trying to get it stand on it’s own.

Despite it’s short comings, I’m still reasonably happy with Hugo, although next time I try to build a straandbeest, I’ll get all the supplies earlier, and use something sturdier than cardboard. 

Also, I hope I never have to use paper tape again.

One thought on “Hugo, the cardboard sculpture

  1. hi Kathryne! Excellent follow-through on this. An ambitious project from the start. I do think that even though it did not exactly walk, that the work was successful from a formal standpoint and I appreciate your embellishments/additions. The most interesting thing about the strandbeasts for me is the way they integrate form and function. Best of luck in all your future endeavors and have a great summer!
