Remarkable work. Open it up and be gobsmacked.

I do like the Sabuda/Reinhart popups (well, except that they seem to be spending more time on designing the paper effects than in actually finishing the drawing and coloring of the figures lately), but this takes paper engineering in a different direction. It's really a series of abstracts, vaguely linked to music or some artist or a visual concept of some sort. For children? Anybody's guess--I'd say: for anyone who is inclined to nourish an emotional response to color, to visual surprises, to patterns or to unexpected changes of form.
