Glassrain

Glassrain

The installation was made in 1984, it consists of 500 pieces of glass, each one with razor sharp edges. The length of the individual pieces varies from 50 cm to 150 cm. Measurements of installation; 700 x 600 x 400 cm.

A V-formed narrow pathway goes through the installation, approximately 70 cm wide, where no glasses are hanging, so that one can enter it.  But when entering the spectator can not see whether he can continue and get out through the artwork, or will have to back out the same way he came, not until reaching the bend of the pathway.
