Illuminated Papercut Light Boxes by Hari & Deepti

Deepti Nair and Harikrishnan Panicker, two Indian artists based out of Denver, Colorado, create beautiful dioramas out of paper cut light boxes. Each diorama is made from layers of cut watercolor paper placed inside a shadow box and is lit from behind with flexible LED light strips.

“Paper is brutal in its simplicity as a medium,” says the artist. “It demands the attention of the artist while it provides the softness they need to mold it in to something beautiful. It is playful, light, colorless and colorful. It is minimal and intricate. It reflects light, creates depth and illusions in a way that it takes the artist through a journey with limitless possibilities… What amazes us about the paper cut light boxes is the dichotomy of the piece in its lit and unlit state, the contrast is so stark that it has this mystical effect on the viewers.”
