Paper Tiger - Susan Stockwell

There is an interesting installation in the lobby of One Canada Square at the moment (back to Mexico shortly), from the sounds of things it was put together by the artist (Susan Stockwell) with the site in mind. The pieces are quite intriguing, all of them looking like they may be functional, but in reality freakishly tall (you would need stilts to wear this one) -

- or these ones (look like quilting) but are actually made from cleverly sliced maps -
Paper Tiger #5
Paper Tiger #3
- or an impossibly long train, and all made from scrunched up or folded layers of rice paper...

As long as you don't make too much of a fuss about it you'll be fine...i.e. try and stick to a compact and keep the flash to an absolute minimum...
