A Ream of Paper

What do you do with reams of paper? Buy one at Staples once a year, print recipes and directions, give it to children with a box of markers? Maybe you enjoy the occasional origami crane or bullfrog? Well, this store in Pasadena has created a work of art.  
One ream = 500 sheets of white 8.5 x 11 regular weight copy paper. It costs about $4.99.
This is actually so much more stunning in person. Did you ever know 500 sheets of paper could be so beautiful? What do I have laying around the house that could possibly be shaped into stunning works of art?

I love the inherent principle behind this installation: art doesn't need to come from exotic or expensive materials. Art flows from the heart of the artist. . . and whatever she can find laying around.
