We found papercutting is another
form of binary design. The craft of papercutting is part of the folk
traditions of cultures all over the world. Generally, a papercutting
a shape formed by cutting out some parts. The geometric constraint for
keeping every part connected. In this ongoing project, we examine the
of constructing valid digital paper-cut designs. We implement a set of
constructing varieties of simple designs including black-and-white
representations of images, geometric patterns and procedurally
arrangements of shapes. Each of these designs is a valid paper-cut. We
ˇ°paper-cut algebraˇ± to combine individual designs into a valid scene.
algebra is in fact a set of binary operations that preserve
connectivity. The results of our system are well suited to
being cut by a computer-controlled craft cutter.
