Weighted Transparency: Literal and Phenomenal Experiments in Glass
05/17/21 - 05/17/21
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Experiments in glass unite natural phenomena with scientific precision to study time, space, mass, gravity, weight, material, surface, light and their related concepts, probing tensions between its literal and phenomenal behavior. Presentations by and a discussion between Naomi Frangos, James Carpenter, Jocelyne Prince, Jessica Jane Julius and Glenn Adamson will speculate on glass practices in art, architecture, pedagogy, craft and curation that take the glass object beyond its objecthood and turn material into medium, to consider its perceptual and sensorial qualities for how to curate our lived experiences through atmospheres of light.

Concurrent NYCxDESIGN event, Litauras, is an in-person exhibition at Industry City.
