Matthew Shlian: Telemetry

Crossroads of Art and Science Residency & Exhibition

Exhibition Dates: January 26 - March 2, 2017


Thursday, January 26 - Artist Talk at 6pm in U. Tobe Recital Hall with a reception to follow until 8pm in the Arts Complex


As a paper engineer, Shlian’s work is rooted in print media, book arts and commercial design.  Beginning with an initial fold, a single action causes a transfer of energy to subsequent folds, which ultimately manifests in drawings and three-dimensional forms. Researchers see paper engineering as a metaphor for scientific principles; Shlian sees their inquiry as a basis for artistic inspiration.  Shlian will exhibit past work and partner with FGCU faculty and students to create new work related to research being conducted at FGCU.
