Ghost Pleat [Prototype], folded paper, 2012
By folding paper into these rhythmic and repetitive sculptures, artist Matthew Shlian gives patterns of life and motion to an otherwise flat form. Describing himself as a paper engineer, Shlian says, “I begin with a system of folding and at a particular moment the material takes over. Guided by wonder, my work is made because I cannot visualize its final realization; in this way I come to understanding through curiosity.” [MyModernMet]
