This show explored the loss of the modes of production that built our country. By juxtaposing hand made objects against references to the industrial technologies of the last 100 years and the digital technologies of the next, I looked to bring awareness to the ways in wich we perceive at the things we make.
This show wrestled with the idea that materials, and people alike, must sometimes undergo a catastrophic failure to relieve stress and reach a new equilibrium point
Fine Art & Functional Glass
Uri's work involves finding relationships and meanings among three distinct modes of production: the hand made, industrial, and digital. As a craftsman, passionate about glass, I am compelled by hand-made objects and the skills required to produce them. As a technician, my interest in manufacturing and fascination with the tools of industry drives many of my conceptual and aesthetic choices. As a technophile, I am also drawn to the potentiality of the digital domain to expand the scope of human endeavors. In this way I strive to illuminate the subtle and often mutually exclusive delineations between the temporal and the atemporal, the physical and the ethereal, the tangible and the intangible.
