MonikaGrzymala3 (2)Volumen, a floating paper cloud, by Berlin-based artist Monika Grzymala is on view in the Morgan Library and Museum through November 3, 2013.

MonikaGrzymala (2)Volumen is composed of five thousand irregular sheets of paper handmade by the artist with mulberry fiber in her Berlin studio.

Describing her work as 3D drawing, sculpture and performance art, Ms. Grzymala brings a holistic spirituality to it, and a desire to “learn from nature.”

One really needs to see the work in person to appreciate the inspiration, crafsmanship and design that went into it. It’s worth the trip.
