As a book editor and designer it makes sense that Li Hongbo would use paper as his medium of choice. The flexibility in terms of shape and properties of paper is amazing. With the help of an assistants, Li Hongbo sticks thousands of sheets together with carefully placed stripes of glue to form what look like solid objects. Using an electric saw, he carves these works into human figures etc. Awe-inspiring.
