Paperholm, a Growing Paper City

Edinburgh-based Charles Young creates these moving miniature paper scenes that collectively calls Paperholm.
“Over the last three months I really got to know the material that I’m working with a lot better,” he tells to MyModernMet “By trying to make different shapes with the paper you get to learn its limits in terms of how much it will bend and how finely you can cut it. The paper that I’ve been using is just ordinary watercolor paper but it has a good balance between its flexibility and its strength. The most important thing is simply to use a sharp blade to cut with, this allows you to get good straight edges and to pick out fine detail.”
