Fine artist Keun Young Park doesn't rely on computer programs or other digital devices to help create her mind-boggling micro-collages. Instead, she employs her own two hands to tear pieces of paper into tiny pieces and then arrange them to form realistically detailed body parts including faces, hands and legs. Each artwork is made up of thousands of paper pieces that were saturated in color beforehand.

While the fine lines present in Keun Young Park's work look like pixels, they represent the body in transformation. Park writes, "I believe that everything is constantly changing, either being generated or destroyed. Presence is just a state of being, and the reality of an object has ambiguity in this shifting."

Born and raised in Seoul, South Korea, Keun Young Park is currently based in Jersey City. Stats for Mind-Boggling Micro-Collages Trending: Older & Chilly
