Using Paper, Artist Creates Collapsible 3D Pop-Up Miniature Buildings
Amsterdam-based artist Ingrid Siliakus has created pop-up miniature works of architecture out of paper.
Her three-dimensional models of buildings feature highly intricate escalators and elevators, often dizzying to the eye.
They are constructed at a 90-degree angle using paper that varies from 160 to 300 gram.
Drawing inspiration from artist M C Escher, Siliakus’ works are delicate yet solid in nature since some can be collapsed down into two-dimensional structures.
In her website, Siliakus describes working with paper as a “humble” experience, “since this medium has a character of its own that asks for cooperation”.
