I have a few undocumented paper sculptures that pre-date this one, but because this cube is small I can do it more quickly than the others. These are photos I lit with a desk lamp and photographed with my iPhone. Simple. Quick. Done
The cube is a work in progress for a larger series of small paper sculptures I want to make for an upcoming show. I see them as a collection of paper cut objects, piled one on top of another, and casting interesting shadows.
This first one is a prototype that turned out a bit wonky because my measurements were a bit off. I used a digital cutter to create the form and cut the design by hand. I think these are the first paper cut sculptures I’ve made with black paper instead of white, and am curious to see how they work as a grouping of pieces.
