“Paper engineering is the way to make paper not “flat”! It is magical.”
Macau is a multicultural city with a unique blend of Chinese and Western festivals, which co-exist peacefully with their own identity and sustainable legacy of traditions and customs.
In this exhibition, Benson, the paper engineer will showcase the traditions of Macau festivals, the beauty of the city scenes, Macau lifestyle and traditional Portuguese charm with a multitude 3D creation of paper art through low poly interpretation, generating sculptural appearance to give vibrancy and vitality to the artistic and cultural city.
As the only 3D paper creation show in Macau, the collection consists of polygonal digital art mixed with low poly paper form, polygonal paper light boxes and polygonal paper crafts to give rise to the diversity and functionality of paper art.
