dc.description.abstract“Embryonic” was the first of a series of collaborative works with video artist Heald. The result was a collaborative installation utilising translucency and transparency in both film and kiln formed glass. Two years ago both artists identified a common interest and focus in each other’s work concerning light and movement. Heald was developing projections of her film works onto objects; Bird-Jones was experimenting with moving image in glass. The ensuing collaboration set out to explore how joining both media could enhance the effect of the ephemeral qualities common to both film and glass. These qualities were taken to be: translucency and transparency; and the static quality of glass created from liquid and the dynamic form of video film based on static script or code. Several glass samples were produced and experimented with by the collaborators in the studio. They experimented with Bullseye and Float glass, tack fusing crushed base glass seeking an appropriate and evocative surface to receive the projected film. Material and visual research was conducted concerning scale, size, fixings and juxtaposition of material.
