Visualize Invisibility: Innovations with Glass
This workshop will familiarize participants with glass as a new medium. We will strive to combine physics of sound and physics of glass. Our discoveries will lead to hands-on experimentation with generating sound with glass using, among other things, its frequency and vibration patterns. During this workshop we will investigate a variety of non-traditional techniques with hot and cold glass. Participants will be encouraged to innovate and think conceptually through demonstrations and tricks dealing with sound and optics that will also broaden your understanding of the material's possibility. All levels welcome.
