Just Have to Share - Peter Dahmen

While studying graphic design, German artist Peter Dahmen had assignment to create a 3D object out of paper. Regardless of what he designed, there was no easy or safe way to transport his creations to class on his daily commute. Instead of risking damage, Dahmen devised a way to make his paper sculpture fold flat like a pop-up book, a decision that changed the course of his life.

He enjoyed the challenge so much that be became obsessed with creating more elaborate designs, eventually leading to a full-time career as a paper engineer.

Filmmaker Christopher Helkey recently filmed Dahmen as he demonstrated some of his more incredible paper sculptures, many more of which you can see on his YouTube channel.
