Nice. That pile of stuff almost takes on a "living" motion. I would have been more impressed if you'd told me they were all cut out with a #11 Xacto blade, but. still. .. :wink:

Do you have QuickTime installed Björn?

My first thought was that he must have gotten a lasercutter for xmas. I'm to cynical. But I still love when people build very detailed sketchmodels in simple materials. I remember seeing some link on core to a site with kickass paper sketchmodels which were for ID, not just an art installation. Been trying to do some of that for my diploma project. Just nice to nerd it out with a blade and loads of cardboard.

I have quicktime, but its acting up with chrome on xp. I'll pop in to OSX later and have a looksie!

Me too. Like paper clocks. And tooth-pick structures ... like a FULL SIZE stage coach.
