Overview

Fused glass waterjet cut into tessellated shapes and laminated to tempered glass. 56' x 3'.

Goals

The goal of the design was to use a tessellated pattern of glass to represent how the landscape of Hillsboro has been transformed into a sophisticated juxtaposition of high tech industry and rural countryside. This was integrated into the design by using a deliberate mathematical tessellation of thousands of individual waterjet glass shapes that underlay a soft flowing landscape.

Process

John Groth was the sole artist & designer on this project.
