For her graduating thesis project, art student Shoko Konishi created this beautiful paper structure. She calls it Transition. From the outside it doesn’t look like much, just some paper cylinders in a circle with a small entrance to climb into. But inside is a blossoming dome on the ceiling that creates a transformational experience.
Made from dozens of thick pieces of paper rolled into teardrop shapes, the work provides a space where you can “enjoy the transitioning sky,” says the artist. Light reflects off each of the petals which, collectively, resemble a microscope plant cell.
