Li Hongbo is the creator of these incredible paper sculptures. They look like they have been made entirely from clay or plastic, but are in fact made solely by individually stacked pieces of paper.

The artwork changes its composition entirely by expanding when interacted with. Li Hongbo's general theme of the project is life and death and features a lot of skeletal and mummified figures.

The artwork is extremely intricate and is visually captivating when expanded and shrunk back. The difference within the composition is incredible to see in an almost cinematic way. It is morbid, ghostly and alluring. Li Hongbo's accordion-like technique of sculpturing is admirable for its perfection and the detailing involved.
