Ever hear of paper architecture? Well if you haven’t, it’s time to take a look at the work of Ingrid Siliakus, whose pop-up models of famous buildings achieve a level of intricacy most CGI programs would struggle to better. No structure is too ambitious for Ingrid to tackle – she’s cut everything from the Sagrada Familia to Manhattan skyscrapers from a single sheet of paper. Simultaneously reminiscent of Mexican festival bunting, childhood fold-out books and, oh wait, nothing we’ve ever seen before. Her work falls in to a small but admirable niche of artists meticulously working to transform the limits of craft materiality.
