Wolfram Kampffmeyer DIY Paper Animal Sculptures 1

German artist Wolfram Kampffmeyer studies Computer Animation, but now his 3D creations are jumping out of the digital world. “If you are sitting in front of the computer all day watching your virtual models, you start wishing to hold them in your hands,” he writes.
