Futuristic Animal Sculptures Made Out Of Broken CDs
CDs suddenly don't seem so obsolete when artist Sean Avery reassembles them as beautiful, (literally) reflective pieces of art.

The Paper Sculptures Of Calvin Nicholls
Using nothing but a scalpel, time, patience, and well-lit sheets of paper, Calvin Nicholls makes these paper sculptures for use in advertising campaigns, private collectors, institutions and galleries. Nicholls has been making these magnificent paper creations since the '80s, and a significant portion of his work (over 75 pieces) can be found at Follett Library Resources in McHenry, IL where the library supply company has been using his creations in their international branding since the mid '90s.
