Cologne artist Simon Schubert creates intricate images of stately homes and palaces simply by folding plain white sheets of paper.

Folds in the surface create a relief of just a few millimetres, catching the light at different angles to create detailed pictures of architectural spaces.

The animation above comprises 100 sheets of paper folded to resemble a fictional old house that was constructed in a CAD program, assembled as though the viewer chases a ghostly figure – in reality a flat area of paper – through the paper mansion.
