Art made from paper: Jennifer Collier.
My practice focuses on creating work from paper; by bonding, waxing, trapping and stitching I produce unusual paper ‘fabrics’, which are used to explore the ‘remaking’ of household objects.
The papers are treated as if cloth, with the main technique employed being stitch; a contemporary twist on traditional textiles.
Here's a nice little phone:

Here are some Before and After Shots of Joggers.
Last summer, Sacha Goldberger decided he would take on a very interesting project. He assembled a team who helped him create an outside studio at Bois de Boulogne, a park located near Paris that's 2.5 times the size of New York's Central Park. He stopped joggers, asking them for a favor - would they sprint for him and then pose right after for his camera? Many obliged. Out of breath, these joggers showed an overwhelming amount of fatigue on their faces.
Goldberger then asked these same people to come into his professional studio exactly one week later. Using the same light, he asked them to pose the same way they had before.

I'm not exactly sure I even know what a crumpet is, but this guy does: Pippa Middleton's bum recreated with crumpets.
It took 15,000 crumpets and 24 hours of tireless labour from more than a dozen helpers.
But this ingenious tribute to arguably Britain's most famous face and bottom using one of the UK's favourite snacks is ready for public consumption.
Cheeky artist Laura Hadland has proved that royal bridesmaid Pippa Middleton really is a tasty bit of crumpet, using more than 100 jars of spreads, including jam and Marmite, to create the shading on the 13 metre by 20 metre giant mosaic.
