Maciek Janicki's paper cut-out art installation Paper City is a remarkably detailed 3D metropolis made entirely from sheets of paper. The installation is featured as a video that takes viewers through the miniature buildings, trees and streets of a a cardboard universe.

In the animated video, Maciek Janicki's Paper City unfolds before the viewer's very eyes. As a tiny van drives down a paper road, trees, skyscrapers, bridges, schools, trains, and even mountains begin to magically form from blank sheets of standard 8 by 11-inch computer paper.

As the camera pans around this tiny paper town, the viewer can see all the detailed bends, pleats and folds of each structure come to life to form an astounding collection of paper places. Like a magical world out of a fairy tale, Maciek Janick's Paper City is breathtaking and whimsical.
