German artist Frank Bolter sailed on the Thames River with his origami paper boat, which surprised passersby. Frank built a giant paper boat named “To The World's End” especially for the Drift 10 art exhibition in London.

The paper boat was made out of a giant sheet of paper and fitted with lightweight metal poles to stay afloat. The creator then sailed into Canary Wharf Dock and relaxed with a newspaper.

Implications - What I particularly like about the paper boat by Frank Bolter is that it is an eco-friendly project that demonstrates that products like paper are versatile and can have many functions.
