Laura Cooperman

Born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1984 to a family of architects, Laura Cooperman, has created elaborate structures, floor plans, and meticulous arrangements out of household items as a child. After working for artist Nancy Spero, Laura became engrossed in the delicate, methodical process of paper cutting and began experimenting with light, depth, and movement.

In Spring 2006, Laura received the Grainger Marburg travel grant for her paper-cutting work. She is currently planning to travel to China in the fall to study the traditional art of Chinese paper cutting and to document and interpret the effects of urban renewal in Beijing through her cut paper overlays. With movable parts and rotating gears, her creations are little engineering feats of their own right!
