Funny, but they could not have found a better material than cardboard for this?

cool, but what the goal?
Cute, easy, and probably very fun.
Nataly, art and entertainment doesn’t require a goal. Perhaps just introducing a little bit of weird into the daily routine of passersby may have been the whole purpose, if you must have a purpose.
I think this is great, reminds me of playing with cardboard as a kid.
it does have a purpose?
to show the violence of cities. Its often an ignored aspect of life, this knife is really big to show that it is here and exists
I agree with Immelmann. A shiny, metal knife would look better. I mean, what cartoon has a cardboard knife? Or if they *had* to use cardboard, could they not paint it? It just seems like a lot of good effort to then get lazy at the end.

*Gains courage and goes back on Toxel*
So how long do they lie there?
I actually like that they used cardboard instead of something that looked more like a real knife. IMO it makes more cartoonish & fun and less real & violent.
