Dylan Shields makes sculptures out of cardboard. The sham-marriage between the subject matter and materials are a joy to behold. The piece I saw, titled Hercules As Heroic Virtue Overcoming Discord, depicts a man beating a woman to death with a stick, and it is entirely made from old potato-crisp packaging boxes. The detail is remakable.
