Work in Progress: Multi-media Paper Cut Collaboration

These are process photos of paper cut work I created this week in collaboration with Ben Z Cooper. At the end of August he asked me to collaborate on a multi-media piece for IDS West, and of course I said yes. My part was to intricately cut these two layers of paper to overlay a digital screen.

Each piece is approximately 11.75″ wide by 19.75″ long to fit over said screen.

The bottom photo is the two layers together over the dark screen. I sent this to Ben when I was finished so he could see how thing turned out. I was originally going to cut three or four layers, but I decided the two of them had enough going on all by themselves.

I don’t know exactly what Ben will do for his part of this piece, but I know it’s going to be AMAZING! Check out his website to see more of his work as an Imaginographer.
