Matthew Shlian

Matt-Schlian-paper-engeneer-1Here’s some paper folding inspiration for Project 3…

Matthew Shlian is an artist and paper engineer.  The things that he does with paper are incredible!

His work has caught the attention of scientists in the field of nanotechnology and it’s just one example of how artists and scientists can collaborate in unexpected but really illuminating ways.  Much like our current data viz project, I feel like there’s a liminal space where art and science (and perhaps many other fields) can come together and do some really cool work that not only builds on shared knowledge but furthers each respective field as well.
