Artist and architect Charles Young is currently in the process of making a tiny moving, not to mention incredibly charming, paper world.
Each of the 365 paper structures is mounted on a block of wood, or, occasionally, a potato. Most have moving parts; bunting swaying in the wind, vehicles moving around, turbines and lifts in operation. He films each one doing its thing and uploads an animated GIF of the action.
