Recent explorations combining glass and emerging digital technologies

I am currently investigating the expressive potential of blending glass with emerging digital technologies such as augmented reality or embedded microcontrollers, sensors and conductive traces to trigger outputs such as video or connecting with internet data.



 Stateless Vessel refers to the migrant crisis in the Mediterranean and the grounding of NGO Search and Rescue boats. The piece will use arduino and a neopixel strip to animate shadows.








 I began to develop this idea on the Glass Electric Course at Pilchuck Glass Summer School.
















This is a prototype for Jeopardy, (fused glass, animation, rock, raspberry pi), which responds to live earthquake data.  Small quakes trigger animation of fleeing birds, a major one would drop the rock.
