Thomas Witte of Ditmas Park Turns the Everyday Into Works of Paper Cut Art Thomas Witte walks around the neighborhood with his daughter (and now with his brand new son as well) and sees details that most people overlook, and he thinks about what his next series of paper cuts could be. In the past, he’s turned his grandfather’s old slides into incredibly detailed works of art, and these days he has his sights set on the industrial and the commonplace of streets like Coney Island and Flatbush Avenues. “Where I live and where I work is a huge influence on me, because it’s where I’m spending most of my time,” Thomas explained. “And in this neighborhood, it’s the stuff you see, the stuff you walk by, the stuff you don’t pay attention to. There’s something that happens that you wouldn’t normally expect when you’re working from things that nobody’s focusing on, that they’re only looking at for a split second as they pass by.” “It’s the same sort of feeling that you get from a garage or a nail salon that you walk by every day,” he explained.
