Overview

Reflect 3.2 was included in a juried global survey show of innovations in contemporary glass at Corning Museum of Glass, running May 12- Jan 5, 2020.

Goals

Reflect borrows from the material vocabulary of contemporary architecture to consider the role of glass in the cityscape. Light reflecting on permanent architectural surfaces creates ephemeral moments of visual interest and discovery. Movement through the cityscape introduces geometric distortions and rhythms that engage our biologically rooted inclinations to decode information embedded in the geometries around us. In so doing, these architectural abstractions transform vast factory-made structures into familiar moments.

Process

Curator Susie Silbert visited my studio to see work in person and planned and directed the installation of art by 100 artists working with glass in the Contemporary wing at Corning Museum of Glass.
