While packing up things after In Hope and Fear We Go at The Apartment #9 event, I noticed a shape emerging on the wall that made me think of an Angel. And since it was red and green and it was late November, I got to thinking maybe I could make something vaguely Christmassy with this.
There was one problem, however. I couldn’t find a way to get the camera at the right angle to take the ‘angel’ without either the glass objects being visible or the camera disrupting the light source.
After much experimentation, I came up with the idea of projecting not onto the wall but onto a sheet of semi-opaque perspex and then taking the photo from the other side. This loses some of the crispness of the shapes made. However, I decided to work with it and see what I could come up with.
Then after hours of trying different things, the Sklo Union Amber Glass ‘Lens’ Vase, Rudolf Schrotter Pattern number: 914/20 created a beautiful golden glow. And so the Gold Angel came to be.
