she says it's probably not worth the labor involved, though. It's a
fair amount of labor just assembling them from prepunched, prescored
cardboard, let alone cutting and scoring them yourself.
Is the spirit of the pieceniks truly dead? "Not worth the labor"?
I spent roughly $400, plus a little time spent thinking through
measurements and logistics, having the original foam giantpieces made. I
am hugely (ha) glad I did and would not trade these pieces for anything.
Well, okay, for some things I would, but at the moment they are
completely unique in the world and I prize them.
If you do a little research (I recommend Make magazine - Eeyore's been
in it!) and think laterally, you can probably tinker up a solution for
making giant pieces that's even better than the cardboard kits. It's
worth it. Create the next generation.
