Current Exhibition

INTERACTIVE GLASS – A FIRST FOR CGS (TO INCLUDE VIDEO AND FILM)

” Interactive Glass – A first for CGS (to include video and film)”- was launched on 18th of October 2017

We wanted to explore glass that really interacts with a viewer, that inspired by the need to be touched, moved, immersed in, or participated with. The results are marvellous. As our shows goes from strength to strength, this online exhibition seeks to push us into a different realm.

These 55 pieces of work, are not just beautiful to look: they require a physical, optical or practical investigation. They prompt questions. They suggest you look and touch. They suggest a use, maybe within a timeline. They have been designed and made with people in mind, a user, an operator or an inquisitive exploration.

Can an audience or viewer interact with the work? Are there moving parts, wheels, tactile areas? Does the artist use film or photography and installations to interact with an audience?

We also invited 3 International Artists: Aaron Ristau, Bernie Huebner and Simone Crestani to share their work in the exhibition with us.

We are honoured to include them and their amazing collections. A big thank you to them for exhibiting their work in this exhibition.

Thank you, Nicola Schellander and the CGS Board

Tashlich/To Cast Away
Photographer: Keay Edwards
Details: 3" x 3" x 3" each
Tashlich means to cast away in Hebrew.
This piece seeks to create a sacred space in which a viewer can sit in the silence implicit in secrets
while holding a vessel in their hand.
Holding a vessel in my hand, I remember the secret it contains while knowing I can cast it away.

ChaoDependant
Photographer: Agelos Papadakis
Details: Blown glass, magnetic field sensors, arduino, computer.
ChaoDependant investigates the use of art and technology to explore invisibly structured
spaces, in particular the attraction and repulsion of magnetic fields. A glass pendulum hangs
from the roof, with a magnet encased in the glass as the bob. A circular base supports a
collection of glass pods containing magnets, sensors and lights. The audience is invited to
move the glass pods and place them according to their desire. As the pendulum swings,
the magnetic fields around it push it in different directions, leading to a gently chaotic
motion - this plays off the common expectation of a pendulum as a regular process,
segmenting time into perfectly equal intervals. As the pendulum nears each pod, the pod
senses its presence, and glows in response, giving a clear visual indication of the physical
processes taking place. Sonically, each pod is related to a sound which has been recorded
in the glass workshop during the creation of the pieces. The output of the sensors is further
used to subtly manipulate sound parameters in a more abstract and less direct way, so that
the installation holds interest.

Leaning Against the Wall Camera Obscura
Photographer: Ainsley Francis
Details: Each 23cm X 13cm X 10cm
I use engraved glass, woodworking and optics to explore the mutability of individual identity by making camera obscura sculptures that are enchanting and playful. Viewers are invited to hold and play with my sculptures, using them as objects to see immediate world around them differently, and as objects for contemplation and meditation.

In an effort to disrupt common metaphors in English that equate the self with permanence and truth and with interiors, and change and inauthenticity with exteriors, the permanent engraved glass surface of the objects I make interacts the constantly changing projected image of the environment that the work inhabits with the user. They situate change into the place of authenticity by placing the projected image at the core of the object. I aim for my work to be inviting for users to interact with through touch and play, and to date my work has been on a scale that is easily handheld.

A Sea of Horns - 2016
Details: A blown glass installation piece using forty-one glass horns attached to a blown glass base inset into a C Plinth
The piece is a culmination of my MA project entitled "Don't you wonder sometimes 'Bout sound and vision?" D. Bowie (Echolocation)

It's intention is to bring awareness of "seeing through sound". A technique widely used by dolphins and human echolocators such as Daniel Kish, Justin Louchart and Ben Underwood.

The world of the blind and dolphins is seen through the spectrum of monochromes in glorious 360 degrees through the use of sound echoes using primitive clicks.

The piece invites the viewer to enter the "Sea and play around with sound"

"imagine no words, imagine no light"
"imagine a picture, imagine a sound"
"see the picture sent to all around"

Recent research has pointed to dolphins evolving a sono-pictorial language through their sound echoes. It is thought that they communicate in pictures so rapidly it is comparable to video by mere thoughts. The piece is a metaphoric piece to challenge a human centric view of intelligence and disability.

A collection of melted jam-jars on a white felt covered tabletop, with the printed invitation
" JAMMING is an interactive installation, please re-arrange"
Exhibited in VESSEL at Birdwood House Gallery, Totnes, Devon, Sept 2017
The jam-jars were fired to approx 715C, and were in various states of collapse, from puddle to just bending.
People are usually reluctant to touch glass in exhibitions, but in this case they really enjoyed it -
to the extent of adding a bunch of sweet peas to one jar, and planting another up with Baby's Tears!

Silver & green light switch
Photographer: www.jillycunningham.com
Details: Tiffany glass and mixed materials. 9.5x9.5x1cm
While designing the interiors for a home renovation project, I realised that we often ignore a crucial detail in every room - the light switch. Unimpressed by the unimaginative options available, I decided to make my own. My first collection of mosaic light switches are fully functional works of art, handcrafted in Tiffany stained glass. The light switches are a subtle way of making a big statement and each one is completely unique. They can be custom designed to complement your home.

'Choral Crackle'
Photographer: Richard Larter - photograph and framer
Details: 16cm sq Bullseye glass, 15x 4cm sq tiles moveable within 20cm sq wooden frame
In 'Choral Crackle', you can interact by scrambling and then rearranging the 15 glass tiles.

The silhouette of the birds have been made with a crackle effect, and if you look carefully, you can see that the wren, sings with a "tick tick". Note; then that each of the other birds has its song described, so there is a chorus orchestrating a "twitter", with a "churr", or a "chirrup" syncopated with a "zee zee", which all together makes a choral crackle!

The wren is the conductor, with worm in its beak acting as a baton!

Corporeal
Photographer: Lisa Pettibone
Details: 85 x 120 x 11cm
During a residency at The Cube London, I explored the idea of embodiment in relation to cognition. We embody gravity everyday as it pulls and shapes our body creating a series of sensory experiences we are hardly aware of. Several of the glass spheres incorporate gold leaf to make a material connection with the universe we inhabit in our dance with gravity. Visitors often touched this tactile piece and their comments often recognised how sensuous the weight of our bodies can be. Materials: Glass, gold, tights, solid maple wood frame. Thanks to Jake Mee at Smithbrook Glassblowing Studio for making the gold filled spheres.

Lines of Life
Details: Dimensions: 200 cm x 200 cm x 20 cm
This artwork is an interactive installation, in this sculpture are there moving parts,
each bow and each piece when touched moves and causes movement of the other pieces.
It was created using two techniques: flameworking and fusion glass, with bullseye glass.
This work is inspired by an analogy between life and the line.
The line represents the simplest and most pure form of expression, which can be both dynamic and varied, depending on whether or not the points are aligned in the same direction, we will have the straight and curved lines.
A line is a continuous sequence of points, just as life is a continuous sequence of moments. Where every moment is a unique experience that gives way to the next.

'Contained I''
Photographer: Ester Segarra
Details: Dealing with the personal is a strong source of inspiration for Anna; a balance between triangulating the relationship of experiences and the artifacts of her own making.
This piece was created through a process of multi-stage core casting.
The form comprises of two components; the cast glass box contains a free moving 'marble' element which is trapped within it. The viewer is able to interact with the piece through movement of the object in an effort to understand or 'work out' how the smaller glass element is contained within its outer form.

Action Potential from Jenny Walsh on Vimeo.

Action Potential is an interactive sculpture that reflects the human body's neural pathways. Inspired by the works of Benjamin Franklin, Luigi Galvani and Alessandro Volta, who demonstrated the role electricity played in re-stimulating neural pathways. Action Potential's light sequence represents the cascade of neural impulses that transmit information through the body. The light sequence changes depending on which neurone has received an impulse, reflecting the many millions of neural pathways that are stimulated within our body every second.

To butterflies and even frogs (Preview) from Songbirds & Squirrels on Vimeo.

Part of the installation From Songbirds and Squirrels. This body of work combines glass fusion techniques and photographic transfer prints to explore the computer-generated imagery used by London property developers. By appropriating scenes from development hoardings and redeploying them within a fragmented, binary glass vista, the artists attempted to deconstruct and isolate these utopian representations of 21st century London through the playful act of obscuring and revealing.

Details: Glass Blown Necklace, Roll-Up Tecnique, 7 Sandblasted Beads, Colours: black, lemon yellow e pea green, Size: from 23mm to 45mm diameter, Lenght: 500mm, Weight: 150gr.
Handmade blown glass, light and hard wearing. The necklace is made with 7 different glass blown beads with different sizes. It is mounted from the smallest to the biggest bead, with a soft rubber collar.
The peculiarity in this glass, it is that the beads have been sandblasted to give a totally different perception to the viewer. It looks like the beads are made with a different material (plastic, silicone, resin, stone, etc.); so, the viewer can experience a weird feeling touching and wearing the necklace, because it doesn't feel like glass at all!
That's what I want people to show: the feeling of having something between their hands that it is glass but it doesn't look or feel like glass.
People have tried to copy glass in many different materials, I want to do the opposite. From glass,I want to make the viewer believe that it can be another material, even when they are touching it.

Thermochromic Liquid Crystals and Laminated Glass
Photographer: Fabrizia Bazzo
Details: This is one of many tests carried out to determine the feasibility of incorporating Thermochromic Liquid Crystals (TLCs) in glass artworks to create installations that will dynamically react with changes in the environment.
I have been experimenting with incorporating Thermochromic Liquid Crystals (TLCs) within the design of glass artworks. The overall objective is to provide glass art installations that will dynamically react in some way with thermal changes in the environment.
Although a glass installation placed in an architectural space will naturally show a dynamic interaction as the ambient light changes, I wanted to push this attribute further, with the overall objective of providing glass art installations that will dynamically react in some way with changes in the environment.
The image shows how colours and designs can appear and disappear when different temperature ranges are applied to the glass laminations.

Playing the Sounding Glass
Photographer: Alex Hall
Details: blown glass (20cm high x 30cm diameter) with electronics, copper strips for capacitance, recorded glassmaking sounds, computer software
Sounding Glass is an interactive glass object that explores the sounds of its making through human touch to offer a unique, playable, musical experience for the user. The object form was designed to reference the musical hang drum instrument that is played by hand. When a handler touches “Sounding Glass”, the physical contact will initiate sounds of glassmaking which we recorded in glass studios. Those sounds along with newly developed sounds based on the recordings are "embedded" in the object at numerous touch points. These sounds have all been orchestrated to work together sonically within the piece; the glass can actually be played as if it were a musical instrument. It works because its hollow interior is a complex scheme of Arduino boards and electronics, which use copper strips attached to the interior glass surface to conduct human capacitance (natural human electrical charge) for operating the sound programs contained in the computer to which it attaches.

Glass Metropolis
Photographer: Ester Segarra
Details: Multiple layers of low iron float glass, with screen print, on slate. 46 x 40 x 7 cm
I take a lot of photographs of buildings and I love reflections. The photographs show patterns and
abstractions created by light reflected onto the glass windows, making the buildings seem like huge
sculptures.
No human habitation is visible; they look empty, and working in glass seems the ideal way to show
the transparency of high-rise buildings – these are by the Tate Modern.
I have screen-printed some details of my photographs onto the glass onto multiple layers of glass,
which are then fused together to create a whole.
Now they really are a synthesis of what a modern city looks like, devoid of obvious life, a fragile,
lonely ‘glass metropolis'.

Franklyn Hospital provides assessment and treatment for older people with mental health needs, such as dementia. There are themed areas within the ward to help people orientate themselves, and connect with the world outside. The glass was designed to invite exploration by touch, so was fitted in the lightboxes with the textured side facing out. Also in the Coast area are shells, driftwood and other objects which might help bring back memories, and stimulate conversation.

Sweet Nothing ready to find a new home from the Eyjafjnallajokull Glacier, Iceland
Photographer: Hannah Gibson Glass
Details: 10cm tall cast class Sweet Nothing
Sweet Nothings are a collection of unique cast glass figures.
I am passionate about glass and in an attempt to share that passion I began leaving the cast glass figures for others to
find and keep.
They have been left in places far and wide, from the base of the Grand Canyon to the top of the
Eyjafjnallajokull Glacier in Iceland, and beyond.
Each has a note attached, encouraging the 'finder' to keep the figure, in return for a message that simply states where
the new home will be.
Each note explains where the glass to make that particular Sweet Nothing has originated. In this case, James Devereaux.
Many people upload their messages, photographs and videos to for others to share.
I want to encourage people to pick up the glass, be inquisitive. Hopefully look into how the cast glass figures are made.
Essentially to share that passion towards glass.

ChaoDependant
Photographer: Agelos Papadakis
Details: Blown glass, magnetic field sensors, arduino, computer.
ChaoDependant investigates the use of art and technology to explore invisibly structured
spaces, in particular the attraction and repulsion of magnetic fields. A glass pendulum hangs
from the roof, with a magnet encased in the glass as the bob. A circular base supports a
collection of glass pods containing magnets, sensors and lights. The audience is invited to
move the glass pods and place them according to their desire. As the pendulum swings,
the magnetic fields around it push it in different directions, leading to a gently chaotic
motion - this plays off the common expectation of a pendulum as a regular process,
segmenting time into perfectly equal intervals. As the pendulum nears each pod, the pod
senses its presence, and glows in response, giving a clear visual indication of the physical
processes taking place. Sonically, each pod is related to a sound which has been recorded
in the glass workshop during the creation of the pieces. The output of the sensors is further
used to subtly manipulate sound parameters in a more abstract and less direct way, so that
the installation holds interest.

Leaning Against the Wall Camera Obscura
Photographer: Ainsley Francis
Details: Each 23cm X 13cm X 10cm
I use engraved glass, woodworking and optics to explore the mutability of individual identity by making camera obscura sculptures that are enchanting and playful. Viewers are invited to hold and play with my sculptures, using them as objects to see immediate world around them differently, and as objects for contemplation and meditation.

In an effort to disrupt common metaphors in English that equate the self with permanence and truth and with interiors, and change and inauthenticity with exteriors, the permanent engraved glass surface of the objects I make interacts the constantly changing projected image of the environment that the work inhabits with the user. They situate change into the place of authenticity by placing the projected image at the core of the object. I aim for my work to be inviting for users to interact with through touch and play, and to date my work has been on a scale that is easily handheld.

A Sea of Horns - 2016
Details: A blown glass installation piece using forty-one glass horns attached to a blown glass base inset into a C Plinth
The piece is a culmination of my MA project entitled "Don't you wonder sometimes 'Bout sound and vision?" D. Bowie (Echolocation)

It's intention is to bring awareness of "seeing through sound". A technique widely used by dolphins and human echolocators such as Daniel Kish, Justin Louchart and Ben Underwood.

The world of the blind and dolphins is seen through the spectrum of monochromes in glorious 360 degrees through the use of sound echoes using primitive clicks.

The piece invites the viewer to enter the "Sea and play around with sound"

"imagine no words, imagine no light"
"imagine a picture, imagine a sound"
"see the picture sent to all around"

Recent research has pointed to dolphins evolving a sono-pictorial language through their sound echoes. It is thought that they communicate in pictures so rapidly it is comparable to video by mere thoughts. The piece is a metaphoric piece to challenge a human centric view of intelligence and disability.

In 'Choral Crackle', you can interact by scrambling and then rearranging the 15 glass tiles.

The silhouette of the birds have been made with a crackle effect, and if you look carefully, you can see that the wren, sings with a "tick tick". Note; then that each of the other birds has its song described, so there is a chorus orchestrating a "twitter", with a "churr", or a "chirrup" syncopated with a "zee zee", which all together makes a choral crackle!

The wren is the conductor, with worm in its beak acting as a baton!

During a residency at The Cube London, I explored the idea of embodiment in relation to cognition. We embody gravity everyday as it pulls and shapes our body creating a series of sensory experiences we are hardly aware of. Several of the glass spheres incorporate gold leaf to make a material connection with the universe we inhabit in our dance with gravity. Visitors often touched this tactile piece and their comments often recognised how sensuous the weight of our bodies can be. Materials: Glass, gold, tights, solid maple wood frame. Thanks to Jake Mee at Smithbrook Glassblowing Studio for making the gold filled spheres.

Lines of Life
Details: Dimensions: 200 cm x 200 cm x 20 cm
This artwork is an interactive installation, in this sculpture are there moving parts,
each bow and each piece when touched moves and causes movement of the other pieces.
It was created using two techniques: flameworking and fusion glass, with bullseye glass.
This work is inspired by an analogy between life and the line.
The line represents the simplest and most pure form of expression, which can be both dynamic and varied, depending on whether or not the points are aligned in the same direction, we will have the straight and curved lines.
A line is a continuous sequence of points, just as life is a continuous sequence of moments. Where every moment is a unique experience that gives way to the next.

This piece was created through a process of multi-stage core casting.
The form comprises of two components; the cast glass box contains a free moving 'marble' element which is trapped within it. The viewer is able to interact with the piece through movement of the object in an effort to understand or 'work out' how the smaller glass element is contained within its outer form.

A 2 minute film showing how the neurones interact can be seen via this
https://vimeo.com/179031211
Action Potential from Jenny Walsh on Vimeo.

Action Potential is an interactive sculpture that reflects the human body's neural pathways. Inspired by the works of Benjamin Franklin, Luigi Galvani and Alessandro Volta, who demonstrated the role electricity played in re-stimulating neural pathways. Action Potential's light sequence represents the cascade of neural impulses that transmit information through the body. The light sequence changes depending on which neurone has received an impulse, reflecting the many millions of neural pathways that are stimulated within our body every second.

To butterflies and even frogs (Preview) from Songbirds & Squirrels on Vimeo.

Part of the installation From Songbirds and Squirrels. This body of work combines glass fusion techniques and photographic transfer prints to explore the computer-generated imagery used by London property developers. By appropriating scenes from development hoardings and redeploying them within a fragmented, binary glass vista, the artists attempted to deconstruct and isolate these utopian representations of 21st century London through the playful act of obscuring and revealing.

"Bruco Fluo"
Photographer: JoGa Glass
Details: Glass Blown Necklace, Roll-Up Tecnique, 7 Sandblasted Beads, Colours: black, lemon yellow e pea green, Size: from 23mm to 45mm diameter, Lenght: 500mm, Weight: 150gr.
Handmade blown glass, light and hard wearing. The necklace is made with 7 different glass blown beads with different sizes. It is mounted from the smallest to the biggest bead, with a soft rubber collar.
The peculiarity in this glass, it is that the beads have been sandblasted to give a totally different perception to the viewer. It looks like the beads are made with a different material (plastic, silicone, resin, stone, etc.); so, the viewer can experience a weird feeling touching and wearing the necklace, because it doesn't feel like glass at all!
That's what I want people to show: the feeling of having something between their hands that it is glass but it doesn't look or feel like glass.
People have tried to copy glass in many different materials, I want to do the opposite. From glass,I want to make the viewer believe that it can be another material, even when they are touching it.

Thermochromic Liquid Crystals and Laminated Glass
Photographer: Fabrizia Bazzo
Details: This is one of many tests carried out to determine the feasibility of incorporating Thermochromic Liquid Crystals (TLCs) in glass artworks to create installations that will dynamically react with changes in the environment.
I have been experimenting with incorporating Thermochromic Liquid Crystals (TLCs) within the design of glass artworks. The overall objective is to provide glass art installations that will dynamically react in some way with thermal changes in the environment.
Although a glass installation placed in an architectural space will naturally show a dynamic interaction as the ambient light changes, I wanted to push this attribute further, with the overall objective of providing glass art installations that will dynamically react in some way with changes in the environment.
The image shows how colours and designs can appear and disappear when different temperature ranges are applied to the glass laminations.

Playing the Sounding Glass
Photographer: Alex Hall
Details: blown glass (20cm high x 30cm diameter) with electronics, copper strips for capacitance, recorded glassmaking sounds, computer software
Sounding Glass is an interactive glass object that explores the sounds of its making through human touch to offer a unique, playable, musical experience for the user. The object form was designed to reference the musical hang drum instrument that is played by hand. When a handler touches “Sounding Glass”, the physical contact will initiate sounds of glassmaking which we recorded in glass studios. Those sounds along with newly developed sounds based on the recordings are "embedded" in the object at numerous touch points. These sounds have all been orchestrated to work together sonically within the piece; the glass can actually be played as if it were a musical instrument. It works because its hollow interior is a complex scheme of Arduino boards and electronics, which use copper strips attached to the interior glass surface to conduct human capacitance (natural human electrical charge) for operating the sound programs contained in the computer to which it attaches.

Glass Metropolis
Photographer: Ester Segarra
Details: Multiple layers of low iron float glass, with screen print, on slate. 46 x 40 x 7 cm
I take a lot of photographs of buildings and I love reflections. The photographs show patterns and
abstractions created by light reflected onto the glass windows, making the buildings seem like huge
sculptures.
No human habitation is visible; they look empty, and working in glass seems the ideal way to show
the transparency of high-rise buildings – these are by the Tate Modern.
I have screen-printed some details of my photographs onto the glass onto multiple layers of glass,
which are then fused together to create a whole.
Now they really are a synthesis of what a modern city looks like, devoid of obvious life, a fragile,
lonely ‘glass metropolis'.

'Coast' area, Belvedere Ward, Franklyn Hospital, Exeter.
Details: One of four lightboxes made for the hospital as part of the King's Fund's 'Enhancing the Healing Environment' programme.
Franklyn Hospital provides assessment and treatment for older people with mental health needs, such as dementia. There are themed areas within the ward to help people orientate themselves, and connect with the world outside. The glass was designed to invite exploration by touch, so was fitted in the lightboxes with the textured side facing out. Also in the Coast area are shells, driftwood and other objects which might help bring back memories, and stimulate conversation.

Sweet Nothing ready to find a new home from the Eyjafjnallajokull Glacier, Iceland
Photographer: Hannah Gibson Glass
Details: 10cm tall cast class Sweet Nothing
Sweet Nothings are a collection of unique cast glass figures.
I am passionate about glass and in an attempt to share that passion I began leaving the cast glass figures for others to
find and keep.
They have been left in places far and wide, from the base of the Grand Canyon to the top of the
Eyjafjnallajokull Glacier in Iceland, and beyond.
Each has a note attached, encouraging the 'finder' to keep the figure, in return for a message that simply states where
the new home will be.
Each note explains where the glass to make that particular Sweet Nothing has originated. In this case, James Devereaux.
Many people upload their messages, photographs and videos to for others to share.
I want to encourage people to pick up the glass, be inquisitive. Hopefully look into how the cast glass figures are made.
Essentially to share that passion towards glass.
