About this project

Materials have different states of existence: solid, liquid and gas. As an amorphous solid, glass has an unusual place within these conditions. The word ‘amorphous’ derives from the ancient Greek term for shapeless.

The ‘Shapeless’ project evolved around the curious behaviour of glass during the phase transition, when it is difficult to define where the liquid ends and the solid begins. Since there is no distinct point of transition, glass can be both solid and liquid at the same time.
