An Image Can Travel Through Melted Rocks

Video installation, hand made glass sculptures, objects, 2017

An Image Can Travel Through Melted Rocks takes as its starting point the geographical, geological and archeological history of the glass workshop of San Vincenzo al Volturno, in Molise, Italy, that was active in the 900's - and how this connects to questions of light, vision, representation and how an image is created. The installation combines video material with hand made glass sculptures created with inspiration from some of the objects found in the archeological excavations of San Vincenzo.
