Béatrice Coron: Stories cut from paper

Did you think this was a good public talk?
It was a very good and interesting public talk, it’s a rare skill/talent, you don’t see very often.
What did you like about it?
She was very detailed on her work, on how she started paper cutting and the little presentation she gave on how she starts working on her paper cutting work. I also like that she has very interesting artwork around cities especially on the New York City Subway Train Stations. Her entrance was very eye catching with her paper robe.
What didn’t you like about it?
NONE, I liked every second of the presentation.
What was its purpose?
I like that she mention that it took her like 8 years, because she was rejected to begin with. I would say that the purpose is that it is never too late to pursue your dream. Also that story can be told by paper cutting, and not only by books, movies, etc…
