Our 2016 season kick-off will begin with a launch party at Silverspot Cinema in Mercato. We are happy to host paper artist and engineer Matthew Shlian as he presents a talk on his inspiration, work and process. Shlian is a guest lecturer and visiting research scholar at the University of Michigan’s Material Science Department, where he is currently working on a research grant to translate paper structures to micro folds on a nano-scale. He has completed major commissions for such companies as Apple, Levi’s, VW, and The National Science Foundation, just to name a few.
