Apophenia: the experience of seeing meaningful patterns or connections in random or meaningless data. Such is the title of Ann Arbor, Michigan based paper artist and engineer Matt Shlian's geometric series for Ghostly International, a follow-up to 2011’s Tessellation Series. Presented in four distinct moments, each with an edition of 25, Apophenia reads like snapshots in the process of pattern creation. We recently had the opporunity to chat with Schlian to find out more about his creative process, influences, preferences, and why he is "sort of anti-decoration."
