Laser Cut Paper Art Exquisitely Crafted by Eric Standley

Jaw-dropping, awe-inspiring art inspired by Gothic and Islamic architecture, Eric Standley‘s exhibition, “Fold, Paper, Scissors” showcases exquisitely detailed designs of laser-cut paper. Mandala-like, the creations are beautiful enough to inspire faith in an atheist. “The reverence for these structures seems to have to do with the infinite,” says Standley. “It’s trying to project something that’s not even human.”
