Chinese artist Li Hongbo’s latest series entitled Tools of Study features flexible paper sculptures which can move about in ways you’ve never seen before. The technique Li uses is influenced by traditional Chinese decorations known as paper gourds, where a honeycomb like structure is used to bind the pieces and give them surprisingly high flexibility. To accomplish this feat, each sculpture is comprised of thousands of sheets of paper. What seems to be nothing more than a well crafted porcelain sculpture suddenly springs to life, moving about in any direction. To a viewer who does not know what to expect, this can obviously be quite the surprise for them. See it all for yourself by watching the video at the end of this page!
