Won Park is a master origamist. His work covers a wide range of subject matter, but these origami spacecrafts are especially fun. From the Starship Enterprise to Tie Wing Fighters and the Millenium Falcon, Park makes these replicas using real U.S. currency. For example, the Falcon is made from three bills--there's a new way to look at the value of the U.S. dollar!

Implications - Papercraft products are highly popular in the art and design world as of late. By creating sculptures with a delicate material, the artist is able to show an amazing talent for working with delicate materials. This type of work easily draws press attention to the work, increasing awareness of the artist.
