I have been exploring the use of controlled matrices of stringers in warm glass fusing to provide permutations of colour, and refractive index, interactions as air is trapped during the firing, Recombining these sub units in symmetric patterns, then firing again, can create kaleidoscopic illusions of depth and compelling cadences of colour and shade.
I often embrace digital manufacture in my work, programming and making tools to aid my geometric compositions.
I also collaborate with artist Charlie Murphy on the electronic and technical side of a variety of glass and mixed media projects, most recently exhibited at the acclaimed show “The State Of Us” at the Lowry gallery.
As team Photonic Excitors we recently joined in with Br41n.io Linz virtual brain / computer interface hackathon and achieved third place with our 3D printed fibre optic EEG headset prototype.
