Amazing Card sculptor Brian Berg
• The Amazing Card sculptor Bryan Berg
Meet Brian Berg - the most amazing sculptor in the world, are used for their work cards. The largest building erected them - 7, 93 meters in height. Bryan will improve their art for almost thirty years - his first house of cards he had built in the age of eight.
Since then he has managed to get a professional architectural education at Harvard. "Usually my buildings are not destroyed," says Brian. "Due to the fact that I adhere to the laws of the architectural composition and structural geometry, they are very strong and stable."
In the photo - the gambling center of Macau and the hotel for the construction of which 4,000 packs (or 219 thousand cards) were used. Construction took 44 days.
It is the skyscrapers of Dallas Center. To build Berg used 1060 decks of cards, thus establishing a world record in 2007.
The photograph is one of the most difficult of his projects - the Olympic Complex and the "Bird's Nest" National Stadium in Beijing, built in 2008.
In the photo - the landscape of New York, which was shown in the program "Good Morning America" in 2005. This complex is built Brian charitable purposes - to raise funds in aid of tsunami victims. The composition consisted of the Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, Flatiron Building and the Stadium, "Yankees."
"I have many types of equipment that I use in the construction of their structures of the most common decks of cards that you can buy in any supermarket," Brian explains. "I do not just place the card at random, chaotic - no, I have always followed a well-technique in order to achieve certain visual or structural purpose. All maps are located strictly at a certain angle, so that they were each other's support and did not allow each other to fall under its own weight. "
"It is important to note that all of my buildings consist only of the card, without any additional materials. I do not use any props, moreover, no means that would hold the map together. " For television commercials the Lexus, which was shown in the US and in Asia in 2008, Bryan Berg built a unique house of cards on the roof of the sedan from Lexus - to demonstrate how the engine is running smoothly. The engine started, and no card fell. House began to crumble after only too impulsive cotton car door.
However, nothing lasts forever in this world and all built sooner or later destroyed - what Brian meekly accept the relative fragility of their amazing products. "I even like to destroy their card of the building, because I think the destruction of each of the objects is also part of the creative process. Most of all I like to destroy them by a fan - because in that case it is possible to control the flow of air, its intensity and direction. It's just great! This is very interesting, in fact - to see how huge towers crumble from the breeze, like blowing up the monumental columns and walls, causing the collapse of other parts of buildings. There is much to learn about the laws of physics watching like a house of cards collapse. I, for example, the process of destruction brings no less knowledge than the construction process.
