The Glass Whispers Project was the overarching, collaborative endeavor led by PhD student/artist Lisa Naas and composer David Faleris. It is comprised of the 'Sorrows Project' and 'Makers Marks' and was funded by the Ingenious Award of the Royal Academy of Engineering through Edinburgh College of Art as a research grant. The project aimed to marry glass with sound through the science of engineering, bringing together artists and composers with programming experts, electrical engineers, and audio engineers to create installation-performance pieces along with performing objects and objects of performance. The goals of the project were to engage the public and highlight engineering within the art-making and to close the gap between audience and art object through engineering and interactive technology.
