Untitled

2004

300cms x 400cm

 This particular project was designed as two expansive walls of sand-blasted and printed float glass to be located in the entrance hall of an office and private house in the Example area of Barcelona. The glass panels are supported by a metallic structure and consist of sections of float glass of varying dimensions on which patterns and textures, reminiscent of the fragments of old wallpaper and antique lace curtains, are visible. The glass is sand-blasted on both sides to achieve greater depth and intensify the light, then printed with silver stain. When natural daylight passes through the glass, the shape of the design is projected onto the floor.
