Work In Progress: Cutting At Six Times Regular Speed

Every once in awhile I take the time to shoot a hyperlapse of something I am working on. I’ve done this with paper cutting before, as well as drawing and stitching. The latest video I shared last week seemed to connect with a lot more people than usual and it went viral on Instagram, garnering over 24,000 views! I’ve never had that happen before, but it tells me people are much more interested in videos than they used to be on IG.

I’ve since finished the paper cut design, but above is a photo of the work in progress. I took a break from paper cutting for awhile after completing the seven foot tyvek piece because I felt burnt out on it after that. I’m back to enjoying it again, and I’m happy to move on to creating new work.

Below is the video shot with Hyperlapse, which demonstrates my cutting process at six times the speed.
