Slash - Paper Under the Knife

It always grabs my attention when people do amazing things with everyday objects. Things that seem impossible, and infact are impossible for someone who holds very little patience like myself!
So when i stumbled upon these images, i had to share!

Slash - Paper Under the Knife is an exhibition currently being held at the Museum of Art and Design in New York. Its the third instalment in their series in which traditional materials are explored and manipulated into contemporary art and design. The previous two instalments were "Radical Lace and Subversive Knitting" in 2007, and "Pricked: Extreme Embroidery" in 2009.

Slash focuses on the technique of cutting paper, through scissors, lasers, burning, shredding etc.
Having the odd obsession with paper that i do, i'd love to be able to go to this exhibition! Unfortunately my bank and my hectic university schedule say no!
Anyway check it out, it's definitely worth a gander...
