Computer Circuitry and Electromagnetic Spectrum Inspire Design of New Art Glass Mural

Post Time:Oct 19,2009Classify:Industry NewsView:379

In 2008, glass artist Paul Housberg of Jamestown, R.I., created Echo, a 6-foot x 90-foot art glass mural in the lobby of the new technology building at the Naugatuck Valley Community College, in Waterbury Conn.

The piece consists of more than 800 kiln-formed tiles with a saw-tooth relief. Natural light from the east-facing exterior glazing floods the mural by day and wall washers illuminate the mural by night allowing it to be seen from outside the building.

The tiles are predominately translucent with opaque glass accents and are mirrored so as to reflect the ambient light, inviting the viewer to explore its tactile and handcrafted qualities. The mural’s design was inspired by the patterns and colors of computer circuitry and the electromagnetic spectrum.

The project architect was Amenta/Emma Architects of Hartford, Conn. The art glass was commissioned by the State of Connecticut through the Department of Public Works and the Connecticut Commission on Culture & Tourism.
