A few days ago, Japan Society in New York unveiled Tomoko Shioyasu's floor to ceiling tapestry as part of the "Bye Bye Kitty!!!" exhibition, which runs until June 12, 2011. Tomoko takes huge sheets of synthetic paper and carefully cuts away at it using different types of crafting knives and soldering irons. She meticulously chisels the paper to create beautiful intricate patterns on large scale.
I recommend you check it out if you're in New York sometime soon.
