    Wow, that's incredible.

    Here I am thinking being able to tear a Minty wrapper so that it ends up about 30cm is an achievement. :eek:

    Fantastic stuff – it proves that the simple ideas are the best.

    He must have a bloody sharp scalpel. :p

    Those are fantastic. They'd be impressive either way, but the real cleverness is using one A4 sheet like that — the best ideas are the ones that use the cutouts to make something else.

    At first, I thought this was going to be a thread about the sheer evilness of paper cuts and how absurdly painful they can be.

    Cut yourself accidentally with a knife and everyone feels sorry for you; cut yourself with a piece of paper and everyone winces and then usually smiles or laughs.

    Anyway... these are great. Love seeing self-imposed medium restrictions like this. Would have been so much easier to choose any old pieces or sizes of paper. Wonder if these have been in an exhibition or had been used commercially in some way? All very ingenious.

    That is - without a doubt - one of the most impressive things I've ever seen...

    Amazing -- thanks much for this link.

    So delicate and so global -- like he cuts up portions of the world from small corners of paper.

    Makes the stuff sitting in my printer feel the burden of existentialism, too ...
