Paper Bird Installation For An Exhibition/Product Launch
Bird form assembled from two pieces of card without adhesives or mechanical fasteners.
This is a typical example of ‘paper engineering’ – the use of paper (or cardboard) as an archetypal planar material that can be manipulated with relative ease, and again, at relatively low cost, to create a wonderful array of shapes and forms. The goal is to create exciting works with the drama and theatre that a particular event might require by creating a design that is simple to produce and install. Paper engineering is eminently suitable for ephemeral installations.
Lueckenhausen first learnt the art of manipulating paper and card to create the greatest effect with the most efficient use of material and technique while a student of Industrial Design at RMIT in the late sixties under the exemplary tutelage of one of the greats of Australian design education Gerald Herbst.
