Tiny Cityscapes Crafted From Scraps Of Cardboard

I’m sure some of us have seen some pretty amazing installations in the past whether it be large or small, there are some extremely talented artists out there who deserve some praise. Kiel Johnson happens to be one of those artists and should be duly noted thanks to his astounding installation entitled “Everyone’s an Architect” for TEDActive 2012.

Johnson was invited to run a workshop, similar to that of the Corrugated Youth: Cardboard Exhibition, where he had a workshop filled with some pretty awesome looking costumes that were, yes, made entirely out of cardboard. In this particular workshop at TEDActive, he in invited others to help aid in the creation of his paper metropolis. Over the course of several days, the workshop attendees assisted by adding their own additions like LED lights to the cityscape.
