Even as we move to digitized images and social media, our love affair with paper art has by no means diminished over the years. Folded into origami and kirigami, laser-cut, layered and made into sculptures, paper artists can transform a humble sheet of paper into a spectacular piece of artwork. Accessible to all, paper endures as a medium to make notes, lists, memos, letters, ads, and artwork— once the most intimate means of communication, and the most readily discarded.
