This interactive paper guillotine sculpture invites people to experience a paper version of the violent instrument popularized during Robespierre's Reign of Terror prior to the French Revolution. Created by paper artist Mandy Smith and interactive artist Hal Kirkland, Paper Cuts will not cut your head off, but might nick your neck's nape.
Currently on exhibit at London's Somerset House, the paper guillotine does more than allowing you to try out the infamous execution tool and explore your darker tendencies. The beautiful exhibit also involves a camera that is triggered to record as the paper blade falls. This way it captures the 'final' facial expression of the pretend prisoner diving head first. With their neck on the line, participants receive a truly unique experience.
