Matt Shilian and Origami Art: A Combination to Explore New Horizons for Classic Japanese Art

Taking the classic origami art a few steps further, Matt Shilian combined art with science to create these featured works.

Inspired by the cutting of different shapes and object to the design of a virus, Matt Shilian was definitely elaborate while detailing these different pieces. Shilian used various computer programs to get the format of his works and his intricate end products are worthy of a museum exhibit.

"Artist Matt Shlian is great at screwing up. A self-described papercraft engineer, Shlian designs stunning 3-D paper sculptures that fall somewhere between origami, pop-up books, and Minimal Art -- many of them happy accidents. Sometimes "I begin with an idea for movement and try to achieve that shape or form somehow," he tells us. "Along the way something usually goes wrong and a mistake becomes more interesting than the original idea and I work with that instead."
