This giant cardboard squid by Wil Natzel was made as the artist’s Masters thesis project. It was made of laser-cut cardboard and hot glue and is an expression of romanticism and an exploration of patterned surfaces.

Natzel chose to work in cardboard in an attempt to extract and pinpoint a fleeting moment and to glimpse at a rarely seen creature. The large cardboard squid by Wil Natzel has detailed tentacles and intricate cut-out shapes. As a beam, the structure could hypothetically play a functional role as structural support, but as a giant cardboard squid it is definitely a piece of architectural art.
