Whilst prepping my USB stick with vector paths and image files to take to Llandaff, I stumbled upon the idea of creating some miniature cut-outs using the below composition. The above dense image consists of digitally arranged scans of some of my handmade paper, repeated to fill an A3 sized canvas. The idea is to laser-cut the below 9 shapes (outlines of the physical space left by the sheets of paper) from this arrangement, giving the illusion that they are 9 miniature pieces of handmade paper.
This again creates a sense of distance from the moments these pieces of paper represent. The question is what, if anything, will the change of scale add to the work?
