Art of Science: Paper + Scissors = Rock

 

Mineral sculptures by Lydia Kasumi Shirreff, 2011

Mineral sculptures by Lydia Kasumi Shirreff

Lydia Kasumi Shirreff can create most anything out of paper.  The UK-based paper sculptor has turned flattened sheets of dead trees into eye-popping 3D models of plants, animals, building, and food, just to name a few. But my fave is the geology-inspired work she produced for a 2011 show called Animal, Vegetable, Mineral. Paper, scissors, meet rock.
