Jen Stark' paper kaleidescope sculptures have undoubtedly made the rounds, but we don't think they could ever get "old." (If you own one and ever get bored of it, feel free to make a donation to Core77. Cool thanks.) PingMag just posted an interview with the artist herself in which she describes her initial steps, inspirations, process, materials, and notes on specific pieces.
I began making paper sculptures when I went to study in France for a semester. Since I could only take two suitcases with me for five months, I decided to purchase art supplies when I got there. The Euro was high and everything was pretty expensive, so I decided to get the cheapest but coolest looking thing in the art store - a stack of construction paper! I started experimenting with what paper could turn into and it took off from there.
