Untitled installation of four leaded glass skylights in the ceiling at Aird’s Lane, Modern Institute, Glasgow, by artist and musician Richard Wright, in collaboration with York Glaziers Trust – Britain’s oldest stained glass conservation studio.

Each of the four rectangular skylights house a steel frame comprised of nine individual panels – positioning within the structure specifically handmade glass. Cut at definite angles within an intricately designed lead-matrix to produce a three dimensional effect, the distinctively -textured glass interferes with the light to create a play on perspective through the use of light, reflection and the observer’s viewpoint.

Mirror Wall / Jeppe Hein

 

The Mirror Wall, 2009, an interactive installation by Danish artist Jeppe Hein. The following description is provided by the artist: When visitors enter the space the mirror starts moving subtly and wavelike. Visitors facing the mirror will be irritated by the vibrating reflection of themselves and their surrounding. This sensation causes not only a vague feeling of dizziness but also a latent distrust of one’s own eyes and spatial perception.
