Matt Shlian tackles the creation of a scientific point of view, leading him to surround himself with researchers from the University of Michigan. Together, they work on a nanoscale to study paper structures. These scientific observations are the first step. The execution process depends on accurate surgical planning and measurements.
About the artist
Matthew Shlian Suspended between art and science, Matthew Shlian connects the pure abstraction with the tactile and visual worlds, guided by wonder, in the continued pursuit of forms and discovery. His kinetic sculptural forms are inspired by organic material and iterative patterns, each piece mapped out digitally, and then folded and assembled by hand. The artist's impulses cross the purely aesthetic limits and become a tool to analyze and understand the structures at the base of the world.
