Parallel reflections – Ingrid Siliakus
Ingrid Siliakus takes the pop-up book to complex and beautiful extremes engineering Escheresque architectures and so called ‘Rondings’ which contain impressive interwoven and interlinked geometries. The international buildings Flickr set includes remarkable paper structures, including a rendition of Gaudi’s masterpiece, La Sagrada Familia. But it’s in the self-invented structures that another level of mastery becomes apparent. (Her)-Innerrings contains concentric motifs evocative of astrological instruments, Elevation Blue finds the eye wandering up and down floors, in and out of spaces in a way only previously encouraged by Mr Escher himself.
