So apparently, that is what you look like after turning zillions of hand-rolled paper cones into gigantic paper caves! If you have Instagram {hahaha!} you’ve probably seen these insane “Paper Caves” by American artist Samuelle Green. Most recently, the interweb was going crazy over her work at the Art on Paper fair in New York. Well good news … if you’re in New York, you can still wonder through one of her paper caves at 601Artspace until May 5th. Here are a few words from Samuelle’s site about this work:

Upon entering the cavern like space, viewers will be aware of the amount of time and work involved in the creation of the installation and liken it to often overlooked art forms in nature. There is structure and design inherent in the natural world which we constantly draw from and take for granted. We generally fail to acknowledge the skill, time, and detail required to manifest the intricate structures found in objects we encounter regularly — such as those found in bird and wasp nests, beehives, spider webs, rock formations, anthills, feathers, and countless others. Samuelle’s installation references these forms on a human scale – inspiring contemplation.

    Incredible! I am so putting this on my Paper Love pinterest board! Also, I really want to live inside one of these caves. But, how would you dust it, right?
