Paper Flowers and Towers

Yesterday my sister sent me a wonderful link to Peter Callesen's website showing a Gallery of his beautiful Paper Cut Creations. There are Castles, Towers, Skeletons and Beautiful delicate Flowers. The time and effort that has gone into these artworks is amazing! If you are a Paper Lover then this is a must see! It reminded me of a class I took called Paper Construction during my Fashion Design year, it was a lot of fun and each week we had to create something out of paper ... packaging for a particular product, collage, paper cut outs and a dress which had to be photographed - mine was tiny mirror shiny squares of paper sewn together and looked very 60's, it would not have looked out of place in Austin Powers!
Last night we watched a Documentary called The Falling Man, it was amazing, sad, compelling and I can't stop thinking about it Today! I wonder what I would do faced with an impossible situation like that and I hope these people are never forgotten!
