Michael Murphy’s Obama for Time

Georgia-based artist Michael Murphy creates incredible multilayered sculptures. TIME commissioned him for their iPad edition of their annual Person of the Year issue, and Murphy made a huge cardboard sculpture of President Barack Obama.

“In the distortion, viewers are encouraged to see the red and blue edges of the plates as indications of the electoral divides. From the side, the forward momentum of the piece, as it protrudes out into space suggests growth, progress, movement, and the partisan divide.”
