The Beginning of the Birds



So I loved how the white paper on a white wall looked soo innocent and subtle which made me think about creating something that reflected this. While at Walcot Market in Bath I came across some beautiful illustrations of birds from an old book which I quickly grabbed and adapted so that I could cut them out. I had to draw them, trace them and then modify it so that the paper cut would work. Here I was experimenting with splitting the bird and making it 3D. These birds are tiny, smaller than A5.
