Scottish Artist Creates Micro-Architectures with Paper

Scottish Artist Creates Micro-Architectures with Paper

If Sim City existed in the real world, it would likely resemble the vision of Charles Young.

Here is a piece of work that requires a tremendous amount of patience and meticulousness. Scottish artist Charles Young was able to replicate an entire town using only pieces of cardboard, scissors and glue. Titled "Paperholm", his tiny village is even more incredible when viewed in motion (see below).

The original concept was inspired by the photo series "Typologies" from Bernd and Hilla Becher, on which he adds:

The ideas come from things that I've seen or read about, the pieces that I make are never a copy of a real building but are sometimes tangentially inspired by something real.

It's not the first time that we see an artwork made from paper, but we must admit this one is particularly stunning.
