Rachael Harris “Diaphanous Illusion”

GLASS MEET THE FUTURE FILM FESTIVAL 2020 | NORTH LANDS CREATIVE | 03 JULY - 17 JULY 2020

synopsis

CATEGORY : experimental

This artwork combines videos of the surface of my blown glass forms, their reflections, and documentations of water in the landscape. Diaphanous Illusions refers to the lovely fluidity and tension between the diaphanous surface and greater depths of both water and glass as they dance between still and fluid movement.

ARTIST BIO
RACHAEL HARRIS

The experience of discovery in both my exploration of nature and elements of surprise in making, are the main drivers in my work. Using moments in nature as starting points for directing my objects, I then use these blown forms in video work to unveil layers of discovery as I use my hands to find movement and intricacies reflecting from the glass. Combing these revelations of glass and light with my documentations in the environment, I ask us to look deeper, getting closer to the materials and moments around us.
