Visual language of movement. Memory of a material.
There is a definable vocabulary of forms that make up a visual language of movement within glass making. Similar to other forms of orthodox movement, there is an identifiable language that has yet to be communicated.
I presented myself with the opportunity to explore uncharted territory regarding the visual identification and documentation of these movements within the glass studio. Over the course of my Senior year I worked with glassblowers in the tristate area to create a conversation around my theory. This turned into a 21 glyph system to identify movements and an interface that creates a learning experience surrounding the movement of the glassblower and their medium.
