Makers Marks: Feedback Loops
'Feedback Loops' is a series of kiln cast glass work that uses a visual form to describe the creative processes we use. Marcin describes his sound design as 'continuous', 'recursive', 'looping', and 'self-replicating'. Our kiln cast glass shape therefore takes the form of a 'Klein' bottle, which is a glass piece that is forever feeding into itself, with no clear beginning or ending. In the glass craft tradition, it is usually a blown piece, but with these pieces we have used digital rendering tools to assist with the design of a kiln cast piece, enabling nuance within the glass that is different than that of blown pieces. To complement the pieces, Marcin has included sound work derived from our recordings of the making in the glass studios. Team members on 'Feedback Loops' include Marcin Pietruszewski, Alan Horsley, Lisa Naas, and David Faleris.
