Thousands of Korean mulberry paper used to form vibrant three-dimensional art with striking patterns and imagery. Ilhwa Kim from Seoul Korea carefully arranged the rolled paper or seed according to colour.

Each seed unit has the combination of straight lines and circles, which makes a tiny single universe in philosophical terms. Not a single universe has the same shape/look/color in her work. She personally dyes each sheet of paper with of different colours and cuts and rolls the layers of paper to make it rigid.

This ‘Seed’ work series is the dizzying outcome of very tiny universes made by rigid seeds. Check out her website for more info.
