Artist Decorates Old Buildings With Sparkling Paper Sculptures



/>

/>Instead of using paint like most street artists, US-based artist Paige Smith leaves her mark on buildings by using sparkling 3D paper.

/>

/>All across Los Angeles, Smith has tucked paper sculptures that look like crystal and geode formations, into the corners of old buildings, nondescript walls and pipes.

/>

/>Smith views her paper sculptures as unexpected treasures, akin to mineral formations found on hiking trails.

/>

/>Through her art, Smith wishes to highlight the short attention span that people today have due to busy schedules.

/>

/>“Design is a means to an end,” Smith says. “An effective design creates a bridge between an idea and a recipient. The key term is effective. The creative challenge lies in finding a design solution that doesn’t just hang there but is an active conduit for communication.”
