Incredible Miniature Paper Sculptures

Peter Callesen is an outstanding artist in miniature paper sculptures. Peter Callesen transforms paper into playful sculptures, people, animals, and nature motifs. Peter Callesen sees the A4 white sheet of paper as "a material that we are all able to relate to and at the same time the A4 paper sheet is neutral and open to fill with different meaning." His ability to use the same paper in different ways creates magical and, at times, seemingly unbelievable results.

The Twitter Dress by CuteCircuit

Nicole Scherzinger, formerly of Pussycat Dolls fame, stepped out on an event wearing a Twitter Dress, an electronic-powered frock that displayed real tweets in real time. The dress which has 3,000 Swarovski crystals along with those LED lights was created by fashion technology company CuteCircuit. The dress is actually rechargeable via USB and the lights scroll tweets sent to the Twitter account.

The Twitter Dress was commissioned by EE, the U.K.’s first 4G mobile network, for its big launch party, so the tweets scrolling across Nicole's dress were those tweeted by or at the handle @EE and the hashtag #tweetthedress.

Miniatures by artist Nikolai Aldunin

Can you imagine how steady your hand must be to create one of these miniature masterpieces? One breath could literally destroy an entire collection. Coined the master of miniatures, Russian artist Nikolai Aldunin works between the beats of his heart, in order to keep his hands perfectly still. Using superglue, syringes and toothpicks, he creates works of art so tiny, a microscope is needed to see them.

His work includes a T-34 tank a fraction of the size of an apple seed and composed of more than 200 pieces, made of pure gold and described as “perfect copy of a real vehicle”; a gold saddle and horse shoes for a flea; and a camel train in the eye of a needle. He has motivated the creation of a museum for miniatures in Moscow. | Site Maintained by Shyam Srinivas | Admin Login
