The project "The Battle of Everyouth" by Jenny Schmid and Ali Momeni showcases how the laser cutter can be used in a variety of mixed media applications for visual and functional purposes. In the video below you can see caricatures and scenery that have been cut, by the laser cutter, out of thick heavy weight paper. In addition to the visual components of this project you can see that some of the custom equipment was fabricated out of laser cut masonite.
