Remember making paper snowflakes as a kid? Take that process, add a pinch of geometry, a dollop of scientific method and a heaping spoonful of talent and you get these incredible paper creations by artist/scientist/engineer Matthew Shlian. Some are delicately cut patterns in paper; others are intricately folded sculptural objects. I'm fascinated by the way Shlian's identities as artist and scientist come through in his artworks: his work is "experimental" in that it springs from curiosity rather than a vision of a final product. Learn more by visiting his website, and be sure to check out some of his kinetic sculptures in action here.
