Guy Petzall is an American living in Scotland, where the winter nights are seemingly without end. To beguile the long hours of darkness, he started experimenting with paper. Having dabbled with origami for over a decade, he quickly moved on to kirigami, fascinated by the possibilities he found available by interrupting the folded surfaces that origami generally likes to keep intact. Guy sets himself just two basic parameters: each completed model should collapse when folded fl at; and each should be created from a single sheet of paper — nothing should be added or removed, but rather the surface of the paper should be rearranged without losing a shred of its area.
