With the popularity of big papercraft installations still raging, the appearance of similar artistic endeavors such as the Shrink Wrap series is only natural. It embraces the same surreal and cartoonish qualities as paper art while introducing a new and intriguing material into the process.

Created by graphic designer Chris Labrooy, the Shrink Wrap installation series centers on bubbling, plastic balls that are arranged in such a manner that they look as though they are being vomited out of inanimate objects such as toilets and pipes.

Known for his stunning 3-D designs, Labrooy’s Shrink Wrap installation series does not disappoint. Full of whimsy and playfulness, the vibrant colors used makes each installation fun rather than odd or even disturbing. Shrink Wrap makes it appear as though these ordinary objects are alive.
