By removing the unnecessary, this New York City map-cut reveals the “paths, nodes, circles, boulevards, parks and streets” of the greatest city in the world.
Each of the four 3′ x 4′ paper panels fit together like panes of window. Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and the Bronx are all represented, but it’s only when they’re combined and placed against a colorful backdrop that the city begins to take shape.
Also available is a Paris map-cut, which you can see in detail after the break. While New York was cut on regular paper, the Paris version was created out of an actual map, adding another dimension to this stellar concept. Paris is available here for $250.00
The map-cuts come from Charlotte, NC-based artist Karen O’Leary’s Studio K.
