Work > Through a Glass, Darkly

Through a Glass, Darkly is a body of work started in 2012 with video sculptures that use projection, sound and kiln cast glass. These installations began with an idea to create a memory seen through a "mirror" that has lost all of its naturally reflective qualities and becomes a portal of sorts. At this time, I was also researching historical optical tools, like the Calude Glass (or black mirror): an oval, sepia tinted mirror that some followers of the Hudson River School used to create a picturesque composition from which to sketch and paint. At this time I was also first beginning to work with kiln cast glass and to make objects that could be projected upon. The work became layered with ideas of perception, memory, and larger issues of the contemporary landscape, gender and environmental fragility.
