Disrupting the norm
I particularly enjoyed seeing works that took an existing making process and either amplified it for surprising outcomes or introduced a disruption that reframed objects we are so used to seeing.
Working with glass and steel, Bethany Walker’s piece is driven by deciphering how the two materials behave and react with one another. There is an element of planning in the creative process, but the rest is down to chance.
Observing the glass melting and reacting to the metal, Bethany intervenes at a precise point to crash-cool the kiln resulting in the freezing of an ephemeral moment.
