Get up close and personal with paper engineer and artist Matt Shlian, who uses engineering skills to create kinetic sculptures. Matt's work is a hybrid between art and science; his paper folding helps top scientists visualize cellular division and solar cell development. While researchers see paper engineering as a metaphor for scientific principles, Shlian sees their inquiry as a basis for artistic inspiration. Join Matt for a discussion of his work, including the opportunity to handle samples of his artistic creations.
