Environmental artist Steve Messam has built a weight-bearing bridge out of sheets of poppy-red paper, over a small creek, in the middle of the English countryside. That’s right. 22,000 sheets of large square paper were carefully stacked over a temporary wood frame, creating enough compression so that the paper bridge could be entirely self-supporting – no glue, staples or screws. Just the way the Romans did it! After the installation was completed earlier this month, thousands of people (and animals) have since traversed it. Honestly, wow.
