It Only Hurts If You Laugh

Artists Mandy Smith and Hal Kirkland collaborated on a macabre interactive sculpture project called “Paper Cuts”. The touring installation, which has visited Amsterdam and London so far, replicates the infamous guillotine with a colorful version that leaves the “victim” with nothing worse than a paper cut.

Each time the blade falls on a volunteer a camera records the participants expression. The photos are then displayed on a big screen and on the “Paper Cuts” website.
