Gallery: Ingrid Siliakus Creates Intricately Layered Architectural Mode...

 
A close up look at the "Cosmopolitan."

Move to Trash

It was only after carefully studying the professor’s work that Siliakus learned to design these precise constructions. The Amsterdam-based artist transfers the design skills of an architect to a two-dimensional form, examining and exploring how each layer intertwines and overlaps. The work, she says, is a meditative process of cutting and folding the paper into different variations. And the result is extraordinary, a testament to what can be done with just one sheet of paper.
