To See a World

— A Collaborative Archive

This ongoing project investigates sand as an incredible natural resource by inviting people from all over the world to send us a sample from their favourite location. The sand is then melted into a small glass sample that reveals the unique colours embedded within that very place, and becomes a part of our expanding collaborative archive and touring exhibition.

Exhibition at Dutch Design Week (October 2017)

The exhibition takes the form of a map which displays the varying colours of glass from all over the world  >
