These charming little people, positioned by artist Anton Tang all around Singapore, are full of personality. They look like cardboard boxes but are actually Mini Danbos, characters in cardboard box suits from the Japanese manga series Yotsuba&!.
There are times when many of us would like to cover our heads with a cardboard box and shield ourselves from the outside world. Other times, we walk around feeling as if we’re enclosed in such packaging anyway — like faceless, boxed-up products on an assembly line. Yet whichever our experience, alienated or anonymous, one plain fact gives us hope: We’re all human. And we’re not alone.
These are the impressions one might have on observing the miniature mis-en-scenes created by Singapore-based photographer Anton Tang, an artist who reuses toys to express his uniquely playful and comic, yet simultaneously touching take on life, and its fragility. Cue cuteness overload.
