Every day, the Edinburgh-based artist Charles Young makes a new miniature, growing his city of white paper creations. The delicate, architectural constructions range from a lighthouse to a carousel. There are even two chicken houses standing on chicken legs. Positioned on stones or little cuts of wood, each piece is its own island.
