Colorado-based artists Harikrishnan Panijcker and Deepti Nair, also known as Hari and Deepti, created these remarkable light boxes made with intricately cut paper. Each light box tells a story of adventures and other awesome tales.

Paper is brutal in its simplicity as a medium. It demands the attention of the artist while it provides the softness they need to mold it in to something beautiful. It is playful, light, colorless and colorful. It is minimal and intricate. It reflects light, creates depth and illusions in a way that it takes the artist through a journey with limitless possibilities.

What amazes us about the paper cut light boxes is the dichotomy of the piece in its lit and unlit state, the contrast is so stark that it has this mystical effect on the viewers.
