Get to know Paul Long, Shaper in Residence

Sep 29th, 2016

We fell in love with Paul Long’s magical machines and his free spirit. Paul strives to inspire people to create things for themselves by using found objects and cardboard to create interactive and kinetic sculptures. He is fascinated with all things moving (especially gears and the wings of birds), and combines natural elements, both in materials and structure, with mechanical and man-made items. Get to know Paul Long, see more about his Shaper in Residence project, and check out his website:

The Shaper in Residency program arms professionals, creative practitioners, makers, and artists with Shaper Origin, a modest stipend (including materials), and access to our workshop. We encourage the exploration of ideas and work revolutionized by the use of Shaper Origin. If you are interested in applying please send a proposal and your portfolio to
