– Francis Ponge, The Voice of Things, 1972
Following on from her monumental 2011 artwork Emotional Leak (a glass sculpture recording a drip from the ceiling of National Glass Centre), this new work represents Erin Dickson’s first exploration beyond her PhD research into glass and architectural phenomenology.
