An installation art piece by Lu Shengzhong, an artist from Beijing, using hand-cut paper figures carefully arranged in vistas and landscapes, swathes, crowds - assembled as screens or walls, with blocks of the negative cut-outs.

"I use paper to cut this little red figure to demonstrate he delicate fragility of human beings. Ephemeral. A human's life is shorter than a paper's thickness. The material is not important. What is more important is the process you use to create that material. This is more valuable to me." Lu Shengzhong.

The piece below is entitled The Book of Humanity.

from an exhibition at the V&A in London in 2008.
