science and art on paper : matt shlian

With a background in sculpture, book arts, print design and paper engineering, Matt Shlian crosses the disciplines of science and art. His sculpture is of particular interest to me. I am amazed by it from both an aesthetic perspective as well as from a scientific one. He looks to science as a basis for his work and as a way of understanding the human body from a molecular level. Beautiful and fascinating.

The idea behind misfold is based on the idea that the root cause of Alzeheimer's disease is protein misfolding. Amazing.
