Korean-born, New York-based artist Yun-Woo Choi impresses with these ginormous newspaper based sculptures. Using old magazine and newspaper pages, he rolls the pieces up to create various oblong shapes, which takes up massive space in art galleries.

This very interesting technique is held together with the use of wire and resin, which results in the making of overwhelming structures. When viewing these structures, it interestingly changes its appearance and texture when viewed at different distances and angles. What seems to be a mish-mash of colorful torn-up pieces of paper from afar reveals a much more intricate and meaningful identity upon closer inspection. Each of the individual printed pages reveal a past memory, which come together to create a collective history of news events which were once current.

Bringing together the past and the present in these overwhelming and fascinating sculptures is exactly why artist Yun-Woo Choi continues to be successful within the art industry.
