Paper artist mandy smith and interactive creative director hal kirkland have collaborated on ‘paper cuts‘, an participatory sculpture that invites an audience to experience — head first — history’s most infamous apparatus of death. unlike it’s violent predecessor, however, this guillotine’s ‘blade’ offers nothing worse than a harmless paper cut.
