Paper Boat Installation Art From Germany

As a part of an artist’s exhibition in Germany, artist Frank Boelter set sail in his life-size paper boat on the river Elbe.


The paper boat is actually made of Tetrapack (the same stuff your milk and fruit juice and comes in). Boelter claims that this boat will have a “shelf life” of 40 days, before turning into pulp.

Snip from the site:

The 37-year-old artist came up with the idea one breakfast time, while he was sitting at his kitchen table fiddling with an empty milk carton, which he cut up and made into a scaled-down model.

The £110 boat is 30 feet long, weighs 55 pounds, uses a 170-square-metre piece of Tetrapack paper, and took only two hours to construct.
