WWI Commemoration

Whilst at college I was given an assignment to create a glass installation. This was a hypothetical situation to make me think about how glass can create colour in a given space. To make the assignment more realistic I decided to imagine that I had been given a real commission.

I chose the Imperial War Museum (IWM) as my site and World War I (WWI) as my theme. I wanted to commemorate the many people involved so I made four sample panels using colours from the uniforms of the Army, Navy, Royal Flying Corps and the Auxiliary services.

I created a maquette using the sample panels and took photographs at different times of the day to see how the daylight cast different shadows over the potential site and how the colours interplayed.
