A few bits of paper…

With a few bits of paper, some scissors and some time, I can make some awesome things.

Give Eric Standley a few bits of paper, something to cut with (lasers, in this case!) and some time, and he makes this:

I especially like the way he brings together some of my favourite aspects of Eastern and Western art into something that – because of the laser cutting – is extraordinarily modern.

The one below is a personal favourite – my mind conjures the blue threads in the middle into fibre optic cables, completely changing the meaning of the image.

This really makes me think again about what’s possible with my art if I think about the bigger picture.
