Peter says about his work:
Most recently I have started making white paper cuts/sculptures inspired by fairytales and romanticism exploring the relationship between two and three dimensionality, between image and reality. I find the materialization of a flat piece of paper into a 3D form as an almost magic process – or maybe one could call it obvious magic, because the process is obvious and the figures still stick to their origin, without the possibility of escaping. In that sense there is also an aspect of something tragic in most of the cuts.
Check Peter’s website for images of his work, including many papercut works and sculptures ranging from tiny to quite huge.
Thanks for the tip, Looza!
Jen Stark‘s remarkable paper sculptures are wonderfully crafted pieces of art created from construction paper.

The year is 1999. The millennium is almost upon us. Y2K lurks around every corner, threatening to take over our computers and destroy all our technology. And when it does, paper robots will rule the earth.
Available models (can be downloaded as PDF files) include Magnus Style Prime and Optimus Prime.

You’ll still have to wait a few months until the Transformers movie is out (check these new images), so in the meantime you can keep yourself busy creating your own Optimus Prime model.
Check PaperRobots1999′s photos on Flickr. I hope they’ll make a Megatron model soon!
