"I like to use puppets because they are representational of many things. They represent real things, fantasy, dream, the things in our minds, the challenges and happy times." - Lake Simons @lakesimons

@lakesimons Simons Hero's House takes corrugated cardboard to a whole new level. Through delicate object manipulation, Lake animates pieces of cardboard turning them into shelter, toys and a range of other personified objects. Unlike conventional handheld or shadow puppets, Heros's House uses often neglected every day objects to tell a pure story of love, resilience, and determination.
