The Paper Sculpture Artist Charles Young will blow away any preconceived ideas you may have on what is achievable with paper.
About the Paper Sculpture Metropolis by Charles Young
Charles young initially came up with the idea for this thriving metropolis as a 365-day creative project. His drive to explore different architectural forms through the use of paper has now turned into a 635 buildings mega city including a lot of sculptures complete with moving parts. He actually animates some of these and posts the captures on his Tumblr.
Paperholm began in August 2014 as a daily project by artist Charles Young. One new object is designed, made, photographed and uploaded each day. All of the models are made using 200gsm watercolour paper and PVA glue. This method allows for rapid construction and exploration of diverse areas of architecture, pushing the possibilities of this single material.
Construction paused on completion of the first island after a year of daily additions.
The project continued from November 2015 with the construction of a series of five new islands, through further daily additions, building up to the exhibition of all of the pieces together as a constructed archipelago for the first time at the NEoN Digital Arts festival, Dundee in November 2016.
This continuation of the project is supported by New Media Scotland’s Alt-W Fund with investment from Creative Scotland.
