1969 Mustang Coupe Entirely Made from Paper

A full-scale 1969 Ford Mustang — made of paper — is the centerpiece of Jonathan Brand‘s second solo exhibition at Hosfelt Gallery, New York. In One Piece At A Time, Brand reproduces the car in its entirety, right down to the nuts and bolts, displaying it as the individual collected parts.Using digital drawings as a source, he printed the blueprints with a large-format inkjet printer. The components were then meticulously cut out and folded into a wide range of objects including spark plugs, nuts and bolts, a radiator, and even the individual tire treads. It’s amazing taking a look at some of the details — like the keyhole on the door or the interior of the backseat — it just looks so amazingly lifelike. What do you think?
