Cardboard Box Tower

While researching my tower and cardboard box constructions and how they have been used in art, I found this fantastic link to a cardboard box tower

The peoples tower was a work by French artist Olivier Grossetete. It was built in Glasgow with the help of locals and then broken down by those who built it. I love this concept.

Man against art, as the tower is pushed over.

Deconstruction is fun!

This video shows the story of The People’s Tower that Grossetete built at Glastonbury, this one was supposed to be a replica of St Michaels Tower on the Tor.
