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!

Paper artist Nguyễn Hùng Cường lives and works in Hanoi and folds many of his original, distinctly expressive origami works using a Vietnamese handmade paper called Dó. Cường tells All Things Paper that he began folding around the age of five or six and although his work has been featured in numerous popular books on origami, he has not yet made it his full-time career. See much more of his work on Flickr. All photos courtesy the artist. (via all things paper)

It’s been over a year since we last checked in with artist Mark Powell (previously here and here) who draws portraits and birds on old vintage envelopes. His works have become increasingly more detailed the last few months and I’m especially enjoying his series of birds. See much more here.

Migration

Japanese paper artist Nahoko Kojima cuts intricate sculptures of animals, textures, and other natural phenomenon from single sheets of paper, some of which are displayed encased in acrylic sheets while others like her Cloud Leopard are installed as 3D artworks. The artist is currently working on a new piece titled Byaku that will be unveiled at the Jerwood Space in London next month, an ambitious artwork of a life-sized swimming polar bear made using a single sheet of white Washi paper.

You can see much more of Kojima’s work in this online gallery, and learn more about her work at Solo Kojima, a design studio she founded with Shari Solo. (via designboom)

Stop Motion Wire and Paper Music Video by Patator Prod

There are some fantastic sequences in this brief stop motion clip by Victor Haegelin of Patator Prod accompanied by music from Professor Kliq. Haegelin relies entirely on bent wire and paper to create everything you see and it’s amazing how fluid all the individual wire strands become when animated like this, wish it went a bit longer.

‘Screengrab’ Will Mess with Your Brain

Screengrab Will Mess with Your Brain video art paper

Filmmaker Willie Witte is currently working on a documentary series for PBS but in his spare time he makes fun experimental films. His latest, SCREENGRAB, was made without the help of computer effects though I can’t quite figure out how. After watching this three times the hemispheres of my brain are the equivalent of cross-eyed. Music by Kevin McAlpine. (via booooooom)
