Created by Nahoko Kojima 

Kojima uses nylon threads to tie the paper to the ceiling grid. It is a process that turns a single sheet into a 3D object with a clever design and the help of gravity

“When I was a child I would lie down on my back on the grass and draw the underside of flowers. I think when we discover a hidden beauty, we leave our bodies and look on ourselves, the object and environment, all as one lovely epiphany.”  she said.




The artist uses Japanese scalpel blades which are thinner and sharper but become blunt so quickly that she changes blades every two to three minutes.

Concept pieces like Shiro are not easy to create, ship, fund nor concept but such pieces are created in order to unleash the artist’s sheer creative energy. NAHOKO KOJIMA TOOK 8 DAYS TO INSTALL SHIRO WITH ONLY 1 OTHER PERSONThe shows created by the artist require numerous build vendors, employed staff and volunteers however the cutting and install is always personally done by the artist.






Super realist Paper Folding (Origami that will blow your mind away )

HOANG TIEN QUYET was born in Vinh Phuc, Vietnam , and has been folding paper since she was a small kid. Citing his website:
At the time I was amazed at how a flat sheet of paper could transform into beautiful 3D animals and objects, and it was also a joy of a kid who could make his own toys.

He went on to join the  Vietnam Origami Group forum where, with help of friends who shared similar same passion for origami, was inspired to create her own models. Her style is  distinguish and somewhat unique , and  displays exquisite  curves and seamed out edges in most of his models.                He has won many awards; namely Special guest of Ultimate origami convention 2015, in Lyon, FRANCE . Special guest of OrigamiUSA convention 2015, in New York, down NY, USA and co-authored a few books on the art of paper folding (“50 hours Origami +”, and “VOG2 –”, both published by Nicolas Terry).
