Glass is not just a media but a relationship. I continue relating with glass for it’s challenges as well as the metaphors it evokes. In “Code” mysterious symbols form a wall installation in black glass conceptually evoking the ambitions of the medieval alchemists and their desire to turn lead into gold through four stages of transmutation; a blackening, a whitening, a redding and a yellowing. “Code” in black is the first of four installations exploring this concept with corresponding glass colors. The transformative nature of glass as a material is perfectly suited for relating these concepts of change.
