Laser Cutting City Street Maps

Artist Dan Linden uses a laser cutter to make intricate laser cut street maps of cities from around the world. The maps are cut out of recycled mounting board in a process that takes about 2 hours and is quite mesmerizing. Linden has posted videos of the cutter at work: a short snippet of an Atlanta map being made, played back at 4X, and the entire process of making a San Francisco map, at 32X. His maps are available on his Etsy store.
