Today’s #DailyArtBoost is another video from Diane Lia!

“Two years ago I made a prototype of a pop-up book of five iconic Binghamton landmarks. Now I’ve made a kirigami version of each of those landmarks.

There is a difference between a pop-up and kirigami. A pop-up uses valley and mountain folds, but can use extra paper with tabs that are glued down and the page can be opened 180 degrees to show a 3-D form. Kirigami uses only one sheet of paper with cuts and folds to give the illusion of 3-D. The page is opened only 90 degrees. Much to my delight, there is no gluing involved.”
