Glass Helmet


2002
Dimensions: 8”H x 12”W x 12”D
Materials: Blown glass

Project Venues:
2003 Brown University, Providence, RI

I saw great potential in one of the attributes of glass, its ability to resonate sound, and developed a musical instrument, “Glass Helmet Instrument”. It operates similarly to wine glass playing where sound is produced by rubbing around the rim of a wine glass.  I wanted to further develop it as a prosthetic device, which can also function as an extension of one’s body that enhances certain activity such as communication or interaction.
