Ubiquitous Invisibility - Looking through Glass

2018 - ongoing

Looking Through Glass invites people to use Alex's glass I-ngots and beaded screens to observe the world, in micro and macro, through glass in a very conscious way, trying to explore how glass alters our perception of the natural world.  The I-ngots are made the size and weight of different models of mobile phone, which means they have a comforting and familiar feel.  It has been suggested  that they could be used to wean people, particularly young people, off constant use of their mobile phones!


Alex is also exploring the use of beaded glass with her paintings and embroideries - to 'pixelate' the colours and compositions into a new objects textured with light.
