It was only after carefully studying the professor’s work [2] 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.
