Lisa Nilsson‘s “Tissue” is a series of anatomical cross-sections in paper. Made of Japanese Mulberry paper and the gilded edges of old books, they are constructed by a technique of rolling and shaping narrow strips of paper called quilling or paper filigree. Quilling was first practiced by Renaissance nuns and monks who are said to have made artistic use of the gilded edges of worn out bibles.
