d*s reader elizabeth sent over the work of her friend, artist laura cooperman. laura recently graduated from the maryland institute college of art baltimore and showed this beautiful collection of paper art. her intricate creations look like gears but have such an eery, ethereal quality to them that i wish i could reach out and touch them. she lit some of the sculptural pieces so they would cast a beautiful shadow on the wall- it's a must see. click here to check out her work and get more info. [thanks, elizabeth!
