Paperholm began in August 2014 as a daily project by Scottish artist Charles Young. Each object is designed, made, photographed and uploaded every day.
All of the models are made using 200gsm watercolour paper and PVA glue. This method allows for rapid construction and exploration of diverse areas of architecture, pushing the possibilities of this single material.
Speaking about the intention behind the project, Young describes his method as allowing for “for rapid construction and exploration of diverse areas of architecture, pushing the possibilities of this single material.”
The project continues as of November 2015 with the construction of a series of new islands, through further daily additions, building up to the exhibition of all of the pieces together as a constructed archipelago for the first time in the Autumn of 2016.
