Paper Works

Paper WorksCologne artist Simon Schubert creates intricate images of stately homes and palaces simply by folding plain white sheets of paper. 

Folds in the surface create a relief of just a few millimetres, catching the light at different angles to create detailed pictures of architectural spaces. 

The animation above comprises 100 sheets of paper folded to resemble a fictional old house that was constructed in a CAD program, assembled as though the viewer chases a ghostly figure – in reality a flat area of paper – through the paper mansion.” (Vimeo)

Ethereal and beautiful, these paper works must take a great deal of patience to create! As well as this great video, more stills of Simon Schubert’s work can be found over at Dezeen. Onwards!
