Paper_EONeil2

Elonah created this paper sculpture (which you can see is on display). From the pictures, it looks like it was built on-site! Oh, how I wish I could have seen it in person!!!!

Elonah, who used her 24″ Maxx for the project, provided this description:

The project consists of two origami-like figures that are slightly larger than life size. The faceting makes the paper strong which allows it to support itself without any internal structure. I developed the cut files myself and then separated the designs to fit to the machine’s maximum cutting width.

It took nearly 48 hours over 5 days to cut and assemble the project.  The entire project was cut using a combination of the KNK Standard Material Blade and Embossing Tool on 285gsm Fabriano Etching Paper.
