Artist, designer, and teacher , Matt Shlian, may have failed math and algebra, but his curiosity and ‘affinity for geometry’ lead to the art of paper folding, or ‘paper engineering’, as he refers to it.  His intricate paper sculptures are the melding of art and engineering, with each piece cut or folded precisely by hand, resulting in a beautiful geometric works of art.  At once simple and highly complex, each fold of his work creates a stunning transfer of energy and light . . .
