Packaging for art is art

my day job .@artinstitutechi - this is what I do

Unique styrofoam constructions hand-crafted by artists to support the safe transit of art.

A delicate sculptural bust is transformed from a bronze head to a rectangular box. All the space around the head is extended out to conform to cube.

From head to cube. Would that make packaging art a cubist artwork? Haha. Once the artwork is safely transported and taken out of the box, what is left behind? A box with the negative space of the bronze head.

Every parent experiences this with removing toys from their plastic shells. Maybe the people who make the structures of toys packaging should get into making packaging for fine art.
