Explorations combining glass and emerging digital technologies

I am currently investigating the expressive potential of blending glass with emerging digital technologies such as microcontrollers, sensors and conductive traces to trigger outputs such as video or connecting with internet data.

 

 

 

Jeopardy, (fused and cast glass, animation, rock, raspberry pi)

is a piece about human vulnerability, which responds to live seismic data.  Small tremors trigger animation of fleeing birds, a major earthquake would release the rock onto the glass house and inhabitants.

 


Stateless Vessel, (blown, cut and cast glass, arduino microcontroller, neopixel strip, mixed media)  refers to the migrant crisis in the Mediterranean and the grounding of NGO Search and Rescue boats. Shadows are animated to give the illusion of the boat moving in endless circles.
