Joel Berman Glass Studios: Inside Ice
At Winnipeg’s James Richardson International Airport, international travelers receive a truly northern welcome. Intended to mimic the cellular nature of frozen water and to express an environmental kinesis through shifting and changing light, this faceted glass sculpture creates an abstract impression of a glacier. The viewer is invited to experience the art object from a unique perspective, as if viewing a floating iceberg from beneath the water’s surface.
Faceted glass panels offer a strong visual depth to the object. Light constantly shifts and changes as the sculpture is viewed from different angles and as the environment changes, busy and chaotic one moment, quiet the next.
