Sculpture is a permanet glass -light sculpture, located in the main lobby of the Glaston Corporation main building. A powerful statement about flying paper sheets /glass machinery /sharp glass rods/ metamorphoses of light.
Glassy substance in permanent CHANGE. Vitreous mixed light surface.
Inspiration for the glass and light composition: FLYING
SHEETS OF PAPER.
Flying papers in the room recall the energy that can be born between people. The work creates a special life-force; it aspires to give people energy and relaxation from their everyday chores. As the Glaston Corporation headquarters building has curved glass facades, the artwork is especially suited there.
Glassy substance in permanent CHANGE. Vitreous mixed light surface. A meeting under flying papers. The name of the piece of art means “A flying leaf of paper”. The sculpture serves as a
notable example of the world’s top glass enthusiasts cooperating – Every aspect of the creation of sculpture is a result of cooperation of different
specialists: both the architectural vision and its implementation.
The completed glass assembly consists of four curved pieces of glass
at the bottom, topped by three pieces that leave the visual impression
of levitation. The constantly changing lighting system breathes life
into the work. In the daytime the beauty of transparent etched glass
dominates, uniting with sensitive, slow lighting and color
transformations from yellow to white and from white to blue. It gives
passersby the distinct feeling that parts of the curved architecture
are flying inside the interior of the building. At various moments the
sculpture intensifies the building’s round blue reflections. At other
times the accent is given by white and yellow changing images.For lighting the sculpture’s quartz frosted glass rods pass
the light via LEDs. These diodes are intense enough to make the glass
rods shine in the daytime. Additionally, the blue glass in the
background diffuses the natural light from the outside to enhance the
sound turns into a feeling / feeling turns into a line / glass rods turn into a glass sheet / the glass sheet turns into a light / light turns into a vibration / vibrations between people make miracles / vibration turns into an energy-synergy / synergy puts paper sheets to fly

Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
