Building structures inspired by Luke Pearson and Kurt Schwitters

After looking at work by Luke Pearson I decided to recreate this work in a cardboard structure form. His work has a very strong sense of perspective and over hanging forms create an enclosed coridor feel to the drawings.

This was also inspired by Kurt Schwitters. He was an artist mainly known for his collages however the work that I am intrested in the work where he changed the shape of the interior of his home. He called this the Merzbau. It changes the interior and adds angular edges to the room.
I used Cardboard and masking tape to create the structure. It was like an optical illusion with all sides converging to one point similar to fake corridors in carnival fun houses.

 I have enjoyed building this structure and beleive it is quite in keeping with the studies on Luke Pearson.
