By San Francisco-based artist Jill Silvia. She is interested in financial data and transactions, but not in the way that you might think. The artist takes sheets of lined paper found in ledgers and other financial paperwork and meticulously cuts out bits of the page to build these incredible three dimensional paper sculptures. Using a drafting knife, she carefully removes all of the blank boxes, leaving just the lines to form the basic structure of the page, and sculpts them into these exceptionally detailed buildings.
