Glass + Light

Seth Riskin, Manager, MIT Museum Studio

Enrollment: Limited: First come, first served (no advance sign-up)
Attendance: Participants must attend all sessions
Prereq: None

A collaboration between the MIT Glass Lab and the MIT Museum Studio, this workshop will focus on exploring a range of interactions of glass and light for the development of a "light mural" to be installed in the Compton Gallery and Glass Lab windows. Varied light sources (e.g., incandescent, LED, low-power laser) will be projected through glass compositions, forms and colors. We'll cultivate techniques for "painting" with light, shadow and color on rear-projection surfaces. Demos and project work taking place in both the Glass Lab and MIT Museum Studio will include glassblowing, the creation of custom light and movement devices, exhibit design and installation.
