I wanted to do something with some cardboard boxes and styrofoam cluttering my tiny apartment. Since I draw silly robots, I thought I'd make a lifesize version of him.

I posted the whole process in a photo gallery on my website.

It was a challenge, but definitely fun. I'd love to build more if a) I had the money to do it and b) people were interested.

He turned out to be a whole interactive art thing, but it was all inspired by trying to repurpose boxes.

If you get through the gallery and want to see the "snapshots" in his chest, they can be found in my sketchatorium - http://www.blissfullybitter.com/boris/sketchbook.html

I don't think I could see him as anything other than Boris, and he is very cool!

The silver is this aluminum duct tape stuff. I think it came from a hardware store, but I'm not sure. My boyfriend built a kitty robot with a bubble machine inside for me and had a bunch of the tape left over.
