Astounding Paper Sculptures That Burst Out Of Books
By Dorothy Tan, 17 May 2013
Edinburgh-based graphic design student Thomas Wightman has produced a trio of astounding book sculptures for his graduation project.
Depicting scenes that appear to have broken free from the printed pages, this amazingly detailed paper sculpture series consists of a de-railed train, a sea vortex and a flock of fluttering butterflies.
Inspired by the emotions of obsessive compulsive disorder—such as being in doubt—one gets a sense that they came from the imaginary world of books and have taken form in our physical reality.
A typographic element—strings of words cut out of books’ pages—runs through all three of the sculptures.
Scroll down for more images of these wonderful book sculptures.
