Caroline O’Connor MA Glass – Artist Statement
The inspiration to participate in this exhibition comes from my interest in echolocation and its benefits for the light blind.
Whilst flicking through the Farnham archive I became interested in the various textures contained within the handwritten minutes. I considered how this might have been more stimulating to the tactile senses in the past when compared to the printed words of today.
With this in mind I have tried to replicate the differences in the depth of colour by emphasizing the three dimensional nature of the word. The piece of writing that the artwork comes from is the word “in” which is echoed in the line below.
A person is “in” the library and has the echoes of words all around them.
