The stack of flat materials is treated as a medium from which shapes can be made in a different way than from a connected solid. Using paper and book blocks, various processes, such as shifting and bending or cutting and tearing, are applied with which the production of a form from layered units is possible. The thinness of the paper leads to the disappearance of the impression of separated pages and to the creation of solid bodies that at first glance resemble wood, ceramics or rock.
