A metropolis made of cardboard!

Houses, street signs, water tanks and shops, everything is represented in cardboard in the piece called Here, There, Everywhere: Project Another Country!

A hole is placed in the center to let visitors see the details and precision of this giant miniature city.

This ephemeral work of art was created by Filipino artists Alfredo and Isabel Aquilizan. Originally. While the installation was originally made in and patterned on the southwestern Chinese city of Chengdu, the Filipino artists behind the work told AFP the use of cardboard packs more meaning in Manila.

"The cardboard is very much important in the Philippines. In other places, it's discarded, it's garbage" “Here, we use it for everything. We construct with it, it becomes your bed, it becomes your house, it becomes everything" Said Isabel Aquilizan.

You can find this art work at De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde in Manila..

"Cardboard is a strategy for us to, in a way, connect, because it's an ordinary material," Alfredo Aquilizan
