Hold the press: Japanese artist Chie Hitotsuyama creates incredible animals from old newspapers.

By tightly rolling strips of wet newspaper, the artist conjures colourful textures and intricate details, such as the rough fur of snow monkeys and hippo wrinkles, to make her creations eerily lifelike.

Hitotsuyama's work stems from her belief that animals are equal to humans, which can be seen from her incredible care and attention to each piece.

A renowned artist has added another dimension to Paris' Gothic architecture with a stunning virtual reality installation.

Miguel Chevalier has transformed the Sant-Eustace Church with his project, entitled Voûtes Célestes, or Celestial Vaults.

Chevalier uses virtual reality (VR) to map a colourful night sky on the church's high ceilings – but that's not all.

Celestial Vaults actually tracks the movement of visitors who travel through the church, changing shape and colour against the dramatic architecture.

The experience is completed with enchanting musical improvisations and repertoires, creating an immersive adventure into the mysterious Gothic.

A design studio has proposed transforming electricity pylons into giant figures.

Choi + Shine's 'The Land of Giants' turns these bleak, unloved structures into beautiful 150ft tall sculptures, suggesting locations for them around the world.

In the proposal, the figures are seen perching on the edge of cliffs, dancing through fields, and frozen on mountains.

The studio said: 'Like the statues of Easter Island, it is envisioned that these one hundred and fifty foot tall, modern caryatids will take on a quiet authority, belonging to their landscape yet serving the people, silently transporting electricity across all terrain, day and night, sunshine or snow.'
