I have a slight crush on art made from recycled materials these days, so I guess I'm not the most unbiased person when I say that Scott Fife's cardboard busts are simply miraculous and otherworldly.

However, I'm sure you'll agree with me that no artist has ever caught Abe's punk alter ego better than Scott - and that alone secures him a place in the Annals of Wurzeltod™ Art History®.

    I totally agree. This time-lapse video makes the whole process apparent. It's mind-boggling how he can work with cardboard as if it was Play-Doh or something.
