Day 9 > Tracy Szatan

Statement: 

An Endless Glass Space is a meditation on the materiality of glass in physical and digital environments. The piece reflects on glass’s use in representational systems and the geologic processes that underlie the production of glass. Built in Unity gaming software and combining 3-D scanning with filmic techniques, An Endless Glass Space engages multiple photographic forms while exploring the material that many photographic processes might be said to rely most upon.
