What seems like a Pop-up-book at first, appears to be elaborate paper architecture. With a great passion for detail the Amsterdam Ingrid Siliakus creates 3D-artwork made of thin paper. Fascinated by the Japanese professor, artist and originator, Prof. Masahiro Chatani, Siliakus began studying the artists work for some time and later continued designing paper sculptures herself. She often builds twenty to thirty prototypes before finishing the final design. Ingrid Siliakus says: ‘creating paper sculptures, asks of me to work with meditative precision. Paper architecture does not bare haste, it is its enemy; one moment of loss of concentration, can lead to failure of a piece’.
