Paper Art and Packaging

Paper Art and Packaging | Made with (and of) Paper | Scoop.it

"I first spotted Hana Vyoralová's paper art and packaging designs on her Flickr page, Leporello. She lives and works in Prague, and in addition to original commercial packaging, Hana creates 3D greeting cards and invitations, kirigami for children, pop-up books, paper cuttings, and fine art projects such as lamps and paper jewelry."

Chris Lott's insight:

Elegent and ingenious.

"As pretty as these images are, I think it's safe to say they don't begin to do justice to seeing the collages created by Laura W. Adams in person. Although they look as if they could be paintings, each is composed of tiny paper pieces by the thousands."

Chris Lott's insight:

Amazing, intricate work.

Amazing Lifelike Animal Sculptures (José Suris IV ) | Made with (and of) Paper | Scoop.it

"It’s pretty incredible to look at these images and think for a moment that they may possibly be made of real fur or, in the case of the goldfish, scales. However, they are entirely made up of hundreds of tiny pieces of paper carefully layered on top of one another to give this effect, stunning right?"

Derailing My Train of Thought by Thomas Wightman

Derailing My Train of Thought by Thomas Wightman | Made with (and of) Paper | Scoop.it

Says Thomas about this project: 


“The final book sculpture of my major project series. Like the previous two sculptures it uses a visual metaphor to convey the emotions of obsessive-compulsive disorder, and embodies my research by visualising an expression used by a sufferer of OCD. The expression was ‘derailing my train of thought’, because the person felt that the rituals they had to perform were disrupting their day. Where the compulsions and worry would side track them from doing everyday activities.


To convey this metaphor the sculpture shows a train travelling on a journey that has become disrupted, leading it to derail from its set path. Typography was used on the tracks for the title of the piece, also type was used for the coal. In the scene it shows the coal cart tipping over where the type has become mixed up to symbolise the mixed emotions during anxiety and panic”

Chris Lott's insight:

Reminiscent of Brian Dettmer.
