This film is of the glass lab at UW-Madison. I’ve spent more than 1,000 hours of my undergraduate career in this shop, making or breaking one thing after another. It is a documentary of the sights and sounds that I associate with the space.

ARTIST STATEMENT
Bre'Annah Stampley

I am a glass artist that creates exercises in seeing. I ask viewers to see what normally gets overlooked by elevating and recontextualizing materials. I’m fascinated with the mundane and build odd collections through a ritualized process of gathering that is both meditative and playful. I aim to tell stories that restore material agency lost via negligence, inviting viewers to practice seeing.

I am interested in how memories are tied to the spaces we inhabit, the objects we own, and the people that surround us. In my studio practice I explore how objects, images, and language can function as an aide-mémoire.
