This is a time lapse video of the talented and meticulous paper artist, Elaine Penwell. She is working on a new piece for an art show in San Francisco on May 3rd, 2014. elainepenwell.com
The question Elaine is asked most often is, "How long does that take you?" To which she generally replies by the amount of Xacto blades she breaks, dulls and retires during the cutting process... This piece took about 30 Xacto blades.
The video was filmed entirely with an ipod on a tripod over a period of several days. We used an free app demo called "time lapse," which generates 15 second clips. We then stitched together a couple dozen of the clips in imovie. Music by Plastikman.
This piece, along with several others will be shown at the "Paper Cuts" art opening on may 3rd 2014 at spoke-art.com in San Francisco.
