This project was a collaboration between Liam Hopkins (founder of Lazerian studio, Manchester) and Richard Sweeney. The Lazerian dog mascot (nicknamed “Gerald”) was converted from a computer model into a flat layout, which was then printed onto several sheets of A1 paper. The layout was then hand cut, folded and glued to form a physical model entirely using paper. The triangular joints give the sculpture rigidity, despite the fragility of paper. A miniature, D.I.Y version of Gerlad was created, which is available through the Lazerian website at this link.
