Tiny Cardboard Box People in Singapore
Posted on August 27, 2010
Singapore-based artist Anton Tang makes cute little box people with unused plastic figurines and boxes from retailers, such as Amazon, and places them for interesting scenes. Above a box person can be seen assisting a smaller box person.
Neatorama reports that Tang says of his cardboard people, "There are times when many of us would like to cover our heads with a cardboard box and shield ourselves from the outside world. Other times, we walk around feeling as if we're enclosed in such packaging anyway - like faceless, boxed-up products on an assembly line. Yet whichever our experience, alienated or anonymous, one plain fact gives us hope: We're all human. And we’re not alone."

The cardboard people are robots known as Danboard. There is also a book called 365 Days of Danboard.
