A Life Size Paper Cave





Introduction: A Life Size Paper Cave

How to create an easy and quick life size cave in the room. This is a lot easier to create an experience and make something big. 

Materials: 48″*10 yards regular brown wrapping paper, scissors, brown tapes, Epson HD projector, mini DV camcorder (or any digital camcorder or camera with good video function) and tripod

Following will be some projections of some of my drawings in Dunhuang Mogao Caves in China to create this experience.

My project website: to preserve Mogao Caves and World Cultural Heritage.
