Makers Marks

Makers Marks was a collaborative project which brought together sound designers, glass artists, and engineers. We questioned the nature of glass through dialogue between media and conversation among team members. The goals of the work were to bridge the gap between art object and audience through sound and engineering as well as to preserve and share the sounds of traditional glassmaking in distinctive ways. Makers Marks is comprised of five works: 'Makers Suite', 'Sounding Glass', 'Glass in Translation', 'Feedback Loops', and 'Re-Sonata'. Makers Marks is a Glass Whispers Project, supported by the Ingenious Grant, awarded to the Lead Artists by the Royal Academy of Engineering in 2015.
