For the past few months, Rich McCor has been traveling around the world reimagining famous landmarks with paper cutouts.
Starting with some research on the locations he visits, McCor shifts between finding instant inspiration and letting his subconscious drive his creations: “After doing the first few cut-outs, I think my brain learned to look for quirky shapes and ideas in architecture and everyday objects; it’s a pretty good mental exercise.”
“I think my strongest ideas involve the simplest shapes,” McCor notes. “My personal favorite is the UFO over Copenhagen’s Cirkelbroen because of the simplicity of the idea and the execution.”
