The Hyperopia Projects Archives is an aggregation of critically-engaged writings, activity, and resources in the field of glass. This compilation reflects the field as it is evolving today by lending a critical mass of exposure and interconnectedness to otherwise orphaned work.

  • How Is This Glass

    HISTGWe have the curatorial team of Yukanjali (Yuka Otani and Anjali Srinivasan) to thank for coining the term “post-glass.” Their 2009 exhibition How Is This Glass: Post-Glass Artists / Glass Guerillas was introduced to the world as such: “how is this glass? presents the unpredictable ways in which artists open our minds up to possibility of new relationships and forms that may underlie the realm of glass. Innovative, idiosyncratic, insightful and extraordinary, their methods and actions ensure our attention, curiosity and support. Here we profile an important part of the contemporary studio glass scene as artists are exposed to non-linear methods, modular tools and alternate ways of perceiving and utilizing glass.” This exhibition coincided with the 2009 Glass Art Society Conference in Corning, NY and was organized with support of the ARTS Council of the Southern Finger Lakes Region in Corning, NY.
