Steampunk Machines by Daniel Agdag
A place for poetry with Daniel Agdad, an Australian artist, animation director and monomaniac creator of these fabulous cardboard sculptures!
This series is called “Sets For a Movie I’ll Never Make” / “Scenes for a movie I’ve never done” , which he realizes as you go, without a plan pre-established, according to his inspiration and imagination. We dive with him in a Jules Verne universe, quite similar to the one developed by the Machines de l’Ile in Nantes!
The artist Daniel Agdag will tell you that he does things with cardboard. This statement in no way illuminates the delicate form and eccentric narration of his work.
His cardboard practice has lent himself to his award-winning short films screening around the world, garnering a Dendy Award ™ and AFI nomination.
The work is entirely created from the modest medium of cardboard and glue. To say that it pushes the middle to its limits is a euphemism. His industrial fantasies are meticulously executed, forming delicate, seductive and often hypnotic and complex sculptures. The process he creates intuitively by hand without detailed plans or drawings.
His work has been described as architecture in form, whimsical in nature and incredibly complex. I let you discover his unique art and visions in this Steampunk universe.
