De New-Yorkse kunstenaar Nick Georgiou gebruikt stukken papier uit boeken en nieuwsbladen om portretten en sculpturen te maken. Beslist een mogelijke gebruikerspiste om, als er duchtig gewied moet worden, er toch iets mee te kunnen aanvangen. (my human computer via laughing squid)

"My art is inspired by the death of the printed word. Books and newspapers are becoming artifacts of the 21st century. As a society we’re shifting away from print consumption and heading straight towards full digital lives. My sculptures are products of their environment —both literally and figuratively. As often as I can, I use local newspapers to add authenticity, and the form the sculpture takes is a reflection of the personal connection I feel to that particular city."
