Eric Stanley‘s beautiful laser cut windows are made from layers of paper.
influenced by geometry originating from gothic and islamic architecture, eric standley‘s paper cut windows capture an admiration for the infinite. the intricate stacked forms focus on the conceptual migration from the permanence and massiveness of stone to the fragility and intimacy of paper.
eric, an associate professor of studio art for the school of visual arts at virginia tech, created his artwork by drawing his layers individually in vectors – these can take over four months to complete. then, each sheet is cut using a cnc laser with high resolution optics in order to fabricate in precise detail. most windows compile upwards of 140 overlaps of paper and are framed under clear acrylic for protection.
