European Glass Context 2012 - Newsletter 3
Workshop - Shifting Place
Art LAB Projects in collaborations with EGC2012 is pleased to present an interdisciplinary site-specific workshop exploring place as a shifting context.
Shifting Placewill bring together an interdisciplinary group of students, newly graduated and professional practitioners for a 5-day, intensive engagement. Rather than using hot glass, the group will work on a series of quick, meaningful experiments, in ready-made transparent materials, enabling the exploration of location/site, gesture and souvenir.
