His self-repeating creations are completely handmade.
And in geometrically technical terms, they are "modular, polyhedral forms"…
Which sounds about as confusing as his creations look.
Shlian's inspiration for his interest in these "self-repeating nano scale designs" comes from a place you probably wouldn't expect.
What the artist is most fascinated by, is, " the micro patterning of nature, the structures we find on the nanoscale."
In other words, our whole world is anatomically composed of patterns and structures like these…
And Shlian's aim is to find beautiful ways to bring them to life.
Suffice it to say, he's hitting his mark with brilliance.
