This is one of those ideas that I’ve had for a while and just committed to reality. They’re created by using a laser to burn the lines into the surface of the paper. It’s a delicate balance between enough power for the lines to be clear but not so much that the paper is cut through, especially where many lines overlap. I’m in love with the place where the perfection of computer control comes together with the unpredictablity of using fire to make marks on an organic material like paper. I’m completely addicted to the process and I have more than a dozen more files ready to be rendered in this way.
