Abstract

This exhibition of glass art by the general public, which has been held by Toyama City four times in the past, expands its applicants to overseas to be an international exhibition. Creative and expressive glass works from all over the world including Japan show us diverse charms of contemporary glass. This exhibition presents 54 works selected from 1,110 entries from 46 nations and regions, and introduces the latest result of contemporary glass art worldwide.

Item Type: Show/Exhibition
Additional Information: Magnitudo, trans (volume) is a sculptural investigation emerging from the Ordered Universe Project, a multidisciplinary exploration of the work of Robert Grosseteste. Writing in the 12th century Grosseteste produced various treatises on natural phenomena his thinking was unique, and ahead of its time. In De colore (on colour) his innovation was to argue that colour needed more than the single Aristotelian axis and proposed 3 new axis instead of a one dimensional spectrum from black to white. This piece of work suggests an apparatus to measure or express the idea of colour as volume, the space inside a vessel, interrupted and supported by a brass armature perhaps to calculate the relationship between the inside and outside. The work asks the viewer to question its purpose; to ask what it is searching to measure or capture, The work is made by first blowing blended coloured hot glass bubble which is stretched by pulling in 6 different directions or axis. After being ground and polished the glass form is then high precision 3d scanned to create a virtual scale model. This model is used to create the armature and frame in 3d modelling software and the parts cant then be laid out and cut by waterjet. The brass parts are hand filed and polished to finish, the steel elements are heat blued. The work has been exhibited at the National Glass Centre, Pembroke College Oxford University and was selected for the Toyama International Glass Exhibition.
