Transparent God Paper Sculpture

Peter Callesen can turn an ordinary sheet of white paper into a brilliant story. His delicate installations involve the transformation of flat sheets into cut and folded figures that grow from the paper and fill the 3D space.

Callesen says, "It is probably the most common and consumed media used for carrying information today, but we rarely notice the actual materiality. The thin white paper gives the paper sculptures a frailty that underlines the tragic and romantic theme of my works."

Transparent God is his recent large-scale piece, where an incomplete figure seems to be growing out of the collection of tiny, cut-out people. Some figures remain on the ground, while the others have been consumed, and only the silhouette of their form remains.
