With fresh posts every day, Paperholm represents a growing micro-troplis populated with buildings, buses, cars, planes and trains, the motion of which is animated via gif-formatted images. 1 Building Per Day: Crafting Paperholm, a Working Micro-City
The individual structures are impressive as is the fact that they have moving parts, but their rate of construction is particularly compelling: the man behind this project is creating an additional mini-building each and every day. Charles Young has an advanced degree from the Edinburgh College of Art where he learned to make models – this project was a challenge to himself to not only remain continuously productive but to continue to improve his craft day by day. But the movement goes well beyond vehicles and into the realm of rotating radar dishes, spinning flywheels, sliding cranes, opening and closing garage doors and other elements that give this growing urban experiment a sense of life.
