Artist and sculptor Mandy Smith uses paper as her preferred medium, one which is surprisingly diverse and allows her to build the most incredibly detailed and high-rising mansions, movie sets, and musical instruments, all stemming from a single dimension. Smith has worked with the art department behind Tim Burton's Frankenweenie, and other clients include Coca-Cola, Toyota, and Purex. When we first found Mandy's work, it was because of a series of hilariously uncomfortable sandpaper goods: a bikini, toilet paper roll, a playground slide, and other things that wouldn't feel great. We spoke with Mandy about her work, and why she's so drawn to paper.
