Hand cut three dimensional collage constructed from found images of the human brain. 

Card, foam

23cm x 23cm

These three dimensional collages are inspired by my love of kaleidoscopes. Coined by its Scottish inventor David Brewster, "kaleidoscope" is derived from the Ancient Greek word καλός (kalos, meaning beautiful, beauty), εἶδος (eidos, meaning that which is seen: form, shape) and σκοπέω (skopeō, meaning to look to, to examine), hence observation of beautiful forms. 

Each piece starts with a found image which is scanned in to the computer and turned into the final design. Several copies are printed and then they are painstakingly hand cut using eye surgery scissors and scalpels. Each paper sculpture can take up to a month to make from start to finish. 

This one off piece has been sold. Please contact me for more information if you would like to commission some work in a similar style or theme.
