Reflections: glass: water: art: science

The Reflections programme was an extensive schedule of events, which can be divided into two core parts; an artist-in-residency scheme, which took place in March 2016 and an exhibition, supported by a series of public events in May, which coincided with the broader Festival of Architecture taking place throughout Scotland during the Year of Innovation, Design and Architecture (YIAD 2016), a Scottish Government initiative.

'Reflections: glass: water: art: science' was developed from an original idea by Inge Panneels from the University of Sunderland, in collaboration with several partners. The Artist-in-Residency was supported by Selkirk Conservation and Regeneration Scheme (CARS), CABN (Creative Arts Business Network), the University of Sunderland Glass and Ceramics Department, Edinburgh University Architecture School and the Haining Charitable Trust. During the Residency, the thirty-three participants were able to explore the site of the Haining through the experimental use of glass, allowing artists from diverse working practices access to a material perhaps not accessible or available to them.

The Exhibition and the supporting programme of events was supported by Creative Scotland, the Borders Science Festival, the RIAS Festival of Architecture, the Edinburgh Architects Association (EAA) and Selkirk CARS. The exhibition showcased the works of twenty artists, using glass, film, photography, sound, sculpture and found objects to create works. Over 530 people attended this short exhibition, and the series of events taking place during the exhibition period.

The events which took place under the banner of Reflections: glass: water: art: science in Spring 2016 as part of the Festival of Architecture, can be dissected through both the lens of creativity as a process and making art as a philosophical and political proposition. The two essays contributed by Dorian Wiszniewski and Inge Panneels respectively explore this is more depth.

This e-book is record and consideration of the processes, works and discussion which took place during Reflections: glass: water: art: science.
