Artist Tauba Auerbach is known for her abstract work and her new exhibit features artistic pop-up books with beautiful geometric forms.

Auerbach's colorful pop-up books are simple in the sense that only one structure appears on each individual book, however the structures, or paper sculptures are highly complex. The artist's mathematical aptitude is clear as each paper sculpture varies in size, color and property while offering an illuminating insight into the difficulty behind each finished piece. She incorporates many shapes into her designs to create a colorful and visually appealing pop-up book exhibition.

The exhibit is refreshing as each of the complex patterns are a beautiful feat in the pop-up book medium that normally tends to be marketed towards children.
