Artist Bianca Chang's unique choice of material for her sculptures has gotten her noticed before. Back in 2011, she created stunning spiralling artworks out of piles of paper and she is back at it again. With a slew of new work, she is taking the Internet by storm, and for good reason despite the use of such simple materials.

Living and working in Sydney, Australia, artist Bianca Chang arms herself with a simple albeit life-saving surgical knife to carved into hundreds of sheets of stacked paper. Creating new depth and perspective with her carefully executed cuts allows for "subtleties and gradients to appear in the form of shadows," as noted by Beautiful Decay.
