Powerful Sculptures Designed From Old Newspapers

New York-based Korean artist Yun-Woo Choi is taking the art world by storm with these massive newspaper sculptures. He uses rolled up magazine pages and newspapers, held together with wire and resin, to form shapes that swirl and spin throughout a gallery space, jutting out of walls and transforming the individually delicate pages into commanding structures.

At first glance, the sculptures appear to be simple shapes, but as the viewer looks more closely, the originally printed words of past news and stories are revealed. Each piece exists as a memory of the past, a visual and collective history of news reports that were once the current events of the day. Yun-Woo Choi recycles both the tangible materials and the intangible past into these dynamic three-dimensional forms.
