Intricate Pop-Up Book Unfolds Into Complex Geometric Shapes

Intricate Pop-Up Book Unfolds Into Complex Geometric Shapes

This project turns an ordinary book into a series of 3D mathematical structures

California-based Tauba Auerbach has taken the pop-up book concept to a new level with a collaboration with independent New York-based book store Printed Matter.

The page-turning project titled [2, 3] is a literal documental metamorphosis. As each page is opening so too are new worlds populated by intricate formations that pitter patter between two and three dimensions. The geometric structures emerge from the book as though they are born from the spine, the light illuminating the formerly hidden and near non-existent spaces as they take form in front of your eyes. The six sculptures in the book originate from a range of geometric forms—the pyramid, sphere, ziggurat, octagonal bipyramid (gem), arc, and möbius-strip.
