President Obama Cardboard Paper Sculpture Michael Murphy is a Georgia-based artist who creates incredible multilayered sculptures, one of which was created for TIME Magazine for their iPad edition of their annual Person of the Year issue out of cardboard.

In the distortion, viewers are encouraged to see the red and blue edges of the plates as indications of the electoral divides.
