Kiln-formed Glass Screens

2019

 

From 2017 through 2019 Camille has been experimenting with how to generate complex surfaces where light from a projection or monitor screen can be diffused, modulated or obscured by custom kiln formed glass to create a rich spatial depth within these “screens”.

Camille began learning various kiln forming glass techniques including powder painting, powder printing, kiln fusing and casting during an artist residency at Bullseye Glass Resource Center in Emeryville, CA in 2017. In the completed glass from the residency, she combined layers of glass with differently treated areas into ¾” thick blocks. Some of the process images and completed kiln formed blocks are depicted in the image gallery at right. Each glass layer is scanned before they are fused, so elements in each layer can be used separately in animations on the screens.
