IT'S ALL FLOATING AWAY
A world where everything moves and collides and glass gets to be itself, something that exists beyond our choices. The glass pieces are imperfect and beautiful. Their directions are shown by dotted white lines on a platform of mirrors.
What is hiding under the surface?
Glass is liquid as well as solid – always moving and changing even if only slightly. It seems fixed but it is not.
An imaginary shipment to the outer worlds and the future. It contains samples from our world that certainly will not make sense to anyone who finds it.

WINDOW GLASS PROJECT

It has a previous life. So the pieces come with a story and a history. Stories are then merging and creating new meanings.
