The Screen acts as both surface and frame, separator and communicator.
Based around the ideas and perceptions of void, or a gap in comprehension, the pattern is inspired by travels in the Middle East. The Screen is more than 1800 pieces of glass on edge.
Part of the 2001 exhibition, Touching the Void: Glass Sculpture and Architectural Glass by Henry Amos, it mixes technical mastery with fun to find some fresh insight into edge and enclosure.
The screen was 750mm x 40mm x 1350mm
