Cycle 11 Alt-w Production Award -
Charles Young

An exploration of architecture through the daily production of tiny models from 200gsm watercolour paper. A new building or structure is designed, made, recorded and published online each day, often as an animated gif.

The models were combined into an installation that presented a city located on an imaginary archipelago. Visitors to the Travelling Gallery were behind the wheel on the bridge of a ship sailing towards these islands.

Charles Young's began working on the 'Paperholm' project in August 2014. He has built upon his first batch of 365 buildings and structures, and exhibited a total of 635 buildings for the very first time at NEoN in 2016.

Supported by New Media Scotland's Alt-w Fund with investment from Creative Scotland.
