Mahja et al. – 3D painting

I would like to create a large scale Starry Night by Van Gogh replica using cut pieces of cardboard. I chose this painting because it is illustrious and renowned. But furthermore, it contains repetitive patterns that would make it easier for me to prepare many pieces at a time. I would like to build the sculpture/painting live throughout the duration of the festival starting from just the backdrop and without revealing the picture or name of the painting so as to keep the audience guessing. Ideally, I would not paint over the cardboard and show depth by layering pieces of cardboard for the foreground.
