Paper Engineering by Matt Shlian

Paper Engineering by Matt Shlian

Artist and designer Matt Shlian describes himself as a paper engineer. His work is somewhat atypical, a hybrid between art and science, where paper folding meets nanotechnology.

matt-shlian-2Matt Shlian started school as a ceramicist… but it was only when he realized that he was “interested in everything” that his work really took off.

He creates sculptural artworks from flat pieces of paper that show the incredible diversity of the medium while creating beautifully inspiring forms. They are also doing something rather surprising: inspiring scientists.
