Ventura College Spring 2012 Cardboard Chair Project

Have you ever seen chairs made out of cardboard? My sculpture students did a fabulous job of making one-of-a-kind, unique cardboard chairs. They were instructed to only use cardboard, any type of adhesive, and paint (optional). This year the range of designs covered a stool all the way to the electric chair!  One chair had a cup holder for convenience. Others were created with a specific functional purpose in mind. Others incorporated mathematics into the design. See for yourself.
