Beautiful Paper Installation by Kristi Malakoff

Canadian artist Kristi Malakoff (previously here and here) used layer upon layer of black paper, foam core, and hardware to create a scene of children doing Maypole dance (A traditional western European folk dance in which men and women weave around a central Maypole while holding ribbons, intertwining the decorative ribbons around the base of the pole) for her creative installation, entitled Maibaum.

"By presenting these ubiquitous objects in a new way, I hope to both challenge their entrenched symbolism as well as to bring humanism and the element of the handmade back into these highly manufactured products."
