Art with only paper?

I just came to know an AMAZING artist! He makes super pieces of work with NOTHING but paper! I'm impressed by his inginuity. Let me show you what I'm talking about:
Simon Schubert is an artist like no other. His ...   

Note the columns, the pattern on the floor, and ...

It almost looks like an old school photo negative. ... 

Another stunning interior piece. A stair case ...

OK, this is just getting ridiculous. Schubert ...

An intricate pattern goes off into infinity. ...

A majestic house sits atop a hill. No detail ...

Here, Schubert profiles playwright and Nobel ...

Fantastic, right?  All he does is simply fold the paper here and there to form the picture. But simply sounds like the wrong word, more like difficultly (I don't even know if there's such a word). I love the 6th and 7th picture the most. Let me know what's yours. And yeah, I almost forgot to mention, the artist's name is Simon Schubert. :

New additions

   So, like I said, I'm adding new stuffs. Whoever reads my blog will hve noticed that. First, you might have seen the ultra cool  talking bot or rather a robot you can talk to. It may not be able to make conversation as good as a human (lol, we all differ in our speech abilities, I know) but it's good enough. Then there's the music playlist. And not to forget, the new tab; books to read.
   I've found an amazing tool which makes reading more fun. How? Well, it's an e-book which you can read online just like a real book (though, ofcourse, it can't beat the real thing) but if this is what you'd prefer, then you've found the place! There's just one main downside to it; it's not copyrighted material which means no Daniel Steel books, or J.K. Rowling or Jacqueline Wilson or James Patterson or any of the type. But I will provide links and materials that will most probably interest you. Comments, feedback and suggestions would make it easier. :P
   Well, I'm off to upload an example of what I have been talking for the past paragraph then.

Just a word

I haven't entirely abandoned the reviewer idea. I'm thinking I'd just do a few, not dedicate this blog all to reviews. I scalded my finger recently and it's turned a slight purplish hue. Coming in contact with hot water makes it even worse. Why am I talking about my finger?? Nevermind. It's just that I don't think it's relevant to say that.

   Maths can be easy once you know the rules.
"Are you kidding?!" you might say. But the thing is once you figure out what method to apply math actually becomes enjoyable!
   Occasionally there are sums that you just can't seem to find the answer to! You sit there, stuck, racking your brains trying to solve it while your patience slowly evaporates. Your book becomes messier by the second with all the repeated rubbing and writing and slashing and cancelling. You either stare blankly or glare so hard at the book it might just start sizzling! That's what happened to me recently while I was revising. This sum is the reason I wrote this post:

" Three bricklayers build a wall in 6 hours. I 2 bricklayers build the same wall at the same rate, how long would they take? "

To some it might seem simple. I hae done the same type of sum before but I just forgot how to. Like I said, you might consider this as easy as 'ABC', or rather '123', and go, " THIS is what made you go into such a huff?? " Well, I believe that some math problems are hard for certain people while easy for others and vice versa.
   So, back to the sum. What some would normally do, if following the basic rules of ratio, is this:

" Let the time taken for 2 bricklayers be x hours, then
   xhrs : 6hrs = 2 : 3
   x/6 = 2/3
   x = 2/3 * 6 = 4 (hrs) "

   But this is wrong because 2 bricklayers should take longer to build the same wall at the same rate than 3 (unless they were humans with super powers). The correct answer would be:

" Each bricklayer builds 1/3 of the wall in 6 hours. So, 1 bricklayer would take 3*6 hours = 18 hours, to build the wall by himself. If 2 were to build it it would take:
 1/2 * 18 hours = 9 hours "

Now, if I were to divide a bar of chocolate for me, myself and much would each get? ;)

Reading Month

I'm joining in the 'Reading Challenge' on Cindy's blog and since I can't wait for March 1st I've already started reading. Well, I guess it's also b'coz of the reason that I red frequently, whenever I've the time. I've read an abridged version of Journey to the center of the earth just a few days ago. And I think I'm gonna post my review and opinion of it later. Tata for now!

I don't know but I've had this idea months ago of being a reviewer for all sorts of stuff like books, movies, websites and all. I find it quite interesting. I gess after seeing all those other reviewers out there, mainly book reviewers. So, should I?
