Hari & Deepti
Harikrishnan Panicker and Deepti Nair are an artist couple living and working in Denver, Colorado.

Among their other projects, Hari & Deepti create cut paper shadow boxes, illuminated with battery powered lights. When photographed in darkness, their scenes take on a deep, theatrical feeling.

Like all sculpture and dimensional work, photographs can only give a limited impression of what the work would look like in person.

There is a video on Vimeo of the process by which a large cut paper diorama window display was created (images above, bottom).

You can see a selection of the cut paper shadow boxes on the Black Book Gallery, and more on Harikrishnan Panicker’s portfolio site, Thumb Demon.
