Community Transparency and our Relationship with Light.
Let’s consider glass and transparency. Why is glass transparent and why is it sometimes not? What does it mean to be translucent or opaque? The ability to transmit, absorb, or reflect light is a characteristic that makes glass very appealing in art applications.
When art is made of glass, notable formal aspects we see in most art objects, but also an enhanced relationship with light because of the range of transparency to opacity that is potential in the material.
