It’s been over a year since we last checked in with paper artist Diana Beltran Herrera (previously here and here) whose skill in crafting the fine details of birds using paper has continued to evolve. Herrera’s work has begun appearing in several galleries and exhibitions around the world including Beers.Lambert Contemporary earlier this year and at the Art and Soul of Paper earlier this spring. She’s currently working on a collection of eight sculptures that will be on view at The Cornell Fine Arts Museum in Florida starting September 17th. See more on Flickr.

Ordinary Behavior: Cardboard Electronics Containing Absurd Miniature Dioramas

Artist and illustrator Kevin LCK works almost exclusively in black and white, so it comes as no surprise that as he’s ventured into sculptural objects the aesthetic has remained the same, while the dimensions clearly haven’t. In his new series Ordinary Behavior the artist builds dioramas into everyday electronic objects made from cardboard such as a computer, camera, and iPhone. The artist says his intention is to highlight the sometimes unhealthy relationship people have with technology and explains his thoughts in his artist statement:

‘Ordinary Behavior’ is a project about the unhealthy relationship between human and technology in an everyday context. [...] I seeked to detach the audience from the real world temporarily, provide them with a space to rethink and reconsider the way we behave and think about the relationship between ourselves, objects and environment with technology in a more conscious way.

You can see several more from the series here, and see how several of the objects came together on his blog. (via beautiful/decay, junk culture)

French artist Mademoiselle Maurice (previously here and here) has two fun new pieces up this month as part of the 2013 ARTAQ Festival in Angers, France. Requiring over 30,000 folded components, the artist relied on help from school children and people living in nearby “leisure centers” to help complete all of the pieces in time for installation. Hundreds of additional volunteers were on-hand to help cover a stairwell leading to Montée St-Maurice which was completed on May 31st. See many more photos here.

A year ago I wrote about this amazing geometric paper torso designed by artist Horst Kiechle. At the time the piece wasn’t actually complete as he was still perfecting how all the organs fit together thanks to feedback he received online. At long last the model is done and Kiechle launched an extensive website with free downloadable templates you can print and assemble along with photographed step-by-step instructions for every single piece. So now there’s no excuse to not spend the next three months of your life on this. Good luck!
