The intricate circuitry line on my 5K race timing chip triggered another version of Urban Vine. The line is re-envisioned as vining and growing within a spare segmented urban landscape. Rendered in shimmering glass, the line comes to life with motion and light.
The built world is necessarily composed of segments, repeating elements and material transitions. Cut glass artworks have the same material requirements: individual elements and transitions composing a whole. This material connection makes it an ideal artform for inquiry into concepts of continuity and discontinuity, unity and intermittence in the natural and built worlds.
Living in urban settings requires new ways of discovering beauty and staying connected to nature.
