PERSPECTIVES

I WANTED TO USE DESIGN AS AN EXPERIMENTAL INTERFACE IN THIS PROJECT. THIS MULTI-FUNCTIONAL OBJECT IS DECORATED WITH A VARIETY OF PATTERNS AND TECHNIQUES, AND HAS A MOBILE FORM, WHICH CREATES MAGICAL REFLECTIONS AND REFRACTIONS WHEN COMBINED WITH WATER. SERVING ALMOST LIKE A BRIDGE BETWEEN THE PAST AND THE FUTURE, IT ILLUSTRATES VARIOUS PERSPECTIVES OF TRADITIONAL GLASS ARTS WITH EACH TOUCH.
