Inventive Art: Richard Sweeny and his Paper Sculptures

Richard Sweeny has created a series of sculptural works created through the cutting, scoring and folding of paper. By pleating paper, he creates some arresting scultural pieces, all inspired by his experiment using paper for lamps.

His collection is featured in Flickr. You can learn more about his work on his website

The first one is the Titanic Iceberg

The second one is an x-ray of Mary Boo Hoo's hip while lying in a fetal position

The third one is Barry Bonds' baseball on steroids

The last one is an albino turkey's tail?
