Portrait of Beethoven Made from His Own Sheet Music



To carry out this elaborate project, Erika Iris Simmons sketched an outline of the composer and then cut up the center of the sheet with an X-Acto knife. She folded and arranged the pieces, doing her best to keep them in order and the notation correct. Simmons has similar pieces at her site, including a wave formed from the text of Benoit Mandelbrot's The Fractal Geometry of Nature.

Interesting! There is another artist named James Plakovic who has been doing work in a similar vein for years:
