Creative fellowship at Canberra Glassworks with support from Australia Council of the Arts to develop plasma filled heart forms.
'between stillness & movement' Research & presentation of interactive blown glass neon installation.
This ambitious research project 'between stillness and movement' will culminate in an interactive exhibition. Where 60+ exquisitely blown, neon filled glass heart forms will be installed.
The individual forms will be sculpted and subsequently filled with neon gas. Exploring notions of interconnectivity and embodied electrical impulses. Each object will be responsive to human touch, encircling a darkened space, they will be internally illuminated. This project will expand my technical expertise both in the hot glass studio and with neon tube bending. Developing and gleaning skills to present this interactive installation.
The installation will be presented at the Canberra Glassworks, as a satellite exhibition during the increasingly popular Enlighten Festival, Canberra 2-11th March 2018.
