November 10, 2010 – January 9, 2011
The first in a series of pop-up museum exhibitions in temporary locations is a glass and sound installation by Andy Paiko and Ethan Rose. In Transference, the artists explore the sonic quality of glass by transforming hand-blown and sculpted vessels into a contemporary interpretation of the glass harmonica. A collaborative kinetic-sound installation between glass and sound arts, this collection presents a contemporary interpretation of the strangely ethereal sounds of the “singing wine glass” and reminds viewers of the unexpected potential of the simple glass bowl.
Transference was commissioned by Museum of Contemporary Craft in partnership with Pacific Northwest College of Art, Portland, OR, and originally installed at MOCC from November 19, 2009 to January 9, 2010.
