Glasswing: An Interactive Portal Lounge

Glasswing: An Interactive Portal Lounge for the Vines Arts Festival

August 2021

Interactive textile sculpture made in collaboration with Rianne Svelnis

Glasswing: An interactive portal lounge is a sculpture, a dance space, a set of frames, a collection of passageways, and a constellation of relationships and boundaries. It is an interactive installation of textile openings reminiscent of stomata (plants’ breathing pores). Through this abstraction the audience is invited, by witnessing and traversing the installation, to reflect on the portals of transformation in our everyday lives; material, sensed, and imagined.
