The Town was Paper

Multimedia by KBovey

My artwork is based upon the novel Paper Towns by John Green and represents the fragility of the written word and the fandoms built around them. A fandom is a kingdom or domain of fans that come together to discuss and empathise with the characters in a novel or film.

Viewers are invited to interact with the sculpture by moving the buildings and houses and also use the template provided to construct their own paper building to add to the town, therefore participating in the expansion and evolution of fandoms as a whole.

“The town was paper but the memories were not.” – John Green

I would like to thank the authors for their amazing books that have inspired this work, in no particular order: cassandraclare, fishingboatproceeds, theartofnotwriting, Suzzane Collins and JK Rowling.

It’s Question Tuesday! Cheesy Jokes, Paper Towns Movie, and Dinosaur Butt Brains

In which John answers real questions from real nerdfighters.

The Fault in Our Stars came out on DVD today. Thanks to everyone in the nerdfighter community who supported the movie (and me) through the whole wild and wonderful process.

I AM VERY UPSET BY THE CASTING CHOICE OF MARGO FOR PAPER TOWNS I’M SORRY. It’s not that I have anything against Cara but Margo is a short, curvy, Jewish girl not a tall, skinny, British model. Her appearance is a very important part of the book and so I am very disgruntled right now.
