Paper Cuts: An Interactive Paper Guillotine Installation that You Experience Head First

Paper artist Mandy Smith and creative director Hal Kirkland have recently collaborated on an interactive paper sculpture that invites people to experience the world’s most recognizable instrument of death, head first. The project titled "Paper Cuts" brings a new twist to this infamous apparatus while arousing people’s natural fascination for the macabre. Every time the paper blade falls a camera is triggered to capture the terrified expression of the those who have put their neck on the line for art. Via their website, "This experience will transform a powerful and oppressive symbol of death into a thing of beauty. Delicate, inviting and something people may even line up for. Voluntarily this time."
