Self-taught artist Maude White combines her impressive illustrative skills with intricate paper cutting expertise.

Using an X-Acto knife she cuts each piece by hand slicing away the negative space to make elegant figures. “It may sound weird, but I love to cut. I just enjoy the process,” she said in an interview.

Intricate Organic Forms Cut from Paper by Rogan Brown

Artist Rogan Brown creates intricate sculptural forms reminiscent of microorganisms, plant life, and topographical charts by deftly cutting patterns in layer after layer of paper. A single work can take upward of five months to complete, and just like the organic forms he seeks to emulate the piece evolves as he works without a preconceived direction or plan.

“I want to communicate my fascination with the immense complexity and intricacy of natural forms and this is why the process behind my work is so important. Each sculpture is hugely time consuming and labour-intensive and this work is an essential element not only in the construction but also in the meaning of each piece. The finished artefact is really only the ghostly fossilized vestige of this slow, long process of realisation. I have chosen paper as a medium because it captures perfectly that mixture of delicacy and durability that for me characterizes the natural world”, Rogan Brown says.

Paper City

Paper City 1 Paper City 2

Very impressive.

The streets are paved with paper. This delicate animation follows the charming rise and fold of a fragile metropolis. Captured by an unseen helicopter, the narrative unfolds through winding roads, erupting forests and emerging mountains. Paper City grows in one fluid take, with skyscrapers rising from the page – only to crumble, wrinkle and gently crease back into the ground.

Direction, Animation, Scultping, Camera, Architecture: Maciek Janicki

When Nature Calls Toilet Paper Capsule

When-Nature-Calls-Outdoor-Toilet-Paper-Roll-4 When-Nature-Calls-Outdoor-Toilet-Paper-Roll-1 When-Nature-Calls-Outdoor-Toilet-Paper-Roll-2 When-Nature-Calls-Outdoor-Toilet-Paper-Roll-3

This is so smart! I bet you can make it yourself, for your camping and canoeing trip!

When Alberta College of Art & Design asked their design students to create something that generates social or economic value, students Sarah JensenJanet MolchankoAmy Pon, and Morgan Smith immediately thought of one thing – number 2.

An adventure in the great outdoors comes at a steep compromise of comfort, and when nature calls, leaves don’t always do the trick. In response to the discomfort of forests-sans-toilets, Jensen, Molchanko, and Smith created a waterproof toilet paper capsule made from a 2L plastic soda bottle, a resealable bag, reflective tape, silicone, twine, and recycled paper.

The capsule is designed be hung and has an optional light attachment, for those late night rumbles. Now, at one point or another, every camper has made some sort of make-shift toilet paper holder, but kudos to this crew for refining it, packaging it, and giving it a clever name, When Nature Calls.

Oxfam: Give Naked

Oxfarm - Give Naked

Each year during the holiday months an extra 5 million tons of garbage is added to our landfills, mostly due to wrapping paper. If we all gave naked with just a few presents, we could save enough paper to cover 45,000 football fields. So huddle up gifters. Get crafty. Get creative. Give naked.

Chicago Children’s Museum: Toy store

The number 1 gift during the holidays in the US are video games. This made Chicago children’s museum think: can kids still see the fun of something free which requires no instruction? It’s more of a simple test to see if kids still can use their imagination.
