Every time I see Benja Harney working on something I am amazed, not just at the intricate detail of everything, but the deadlines he works to and the clients he is working for. He is a paper engineer, making sculptures, illustrations, pop up books and objects out of paper. I recently went to an exhibition of his called the Paper Attic where he filled a room full of all things you would find in an attic: ice skates, wine bottles, records, books, all made from paper.
