A one-day symposium on Wednesday 15 September 2010 for seventy-five delegates presented the results of the AHRC funded research project, Paper Models: Investigating laser cutting technology to develop new artists’ books and paper-based creative practice for arts, crafts and design. Artists often adapt industrial and digital technologies to work with creatively, as evidenced by the use of digital printing, to create artists' books and prints. This project created new methodologies for artists' creative production methods. As the technology becomes more affordable, laser cutters are a regular feature within secondary, further and higher education. This project explored the potential of the laser cutter as a tool for artists working with the book form and paper-based work, and examined how it may be able to replace the need for labour intensive manipulation of paper and card by hand. The project also aimed to change attitudes to creative making and increase awareness of the advantage of new technologies for artists/craftspeople.
