The Large Glass department project

Emilia Omilianowicz, Henna Vihantavaara, Linda da Costa, Sam Chua

Supervisor: Jens Pfeiffer

Glasssuckers explores drifting between the ritual and virtual, how the perceptually isolated experience of entering either state is communicated, and more intensely the obtrusion of one individual experience on another – between performers, their surroundings, and other bodies. Using ritualized movement to enter the virtual, a dimension ‘almost-materializing’, the performers move along the glass exterior of the museum,  sanctifying the surface as a membrane of flux.
