The glass department got a very thorough scrub this morning to be bright eyed and bushy tailed for next semester (and holiday classes). It's amazing where little bits of glass go.
For the second time in the space of three days we ended up at the red lion for a drink and lunch (fills a gap but nought else). It was a bigger group this time a mix of years with the addition of Andrew and Marcus.
This years Venice biennale, the 53rd of it's type is introducing a new event featuring 35 (according to urban glass quarterly) or 45 (according to Domus) contemporary artist's working in glass. The exhibition is "Glass stress". Searching the Biennale website for details of it however was not fruitfull.
Whitewall has an article and so does Domus web
