Glass has become an increasingly sophisticated medium for artistic expression. Too often overlooked, stained glass has the capacity to activate space in saturated light environments that recall cinema and theater alongside transcendental associations with spirituality. This workshop, Sebastian Duncan-Portuondo's workshop, 'Light, Space and The Camera - 'Alternative Processes in Stained Glass', asked students to consider stained glass and mirror as expressive mediums through their combination with rudimentary technologies including the camera and overhead projectors.

In the first two class sessions, students Created a kaleidoscope lens for a cell phone camera using mirror and stained glass, and Worked collaboratively to create a light environment using overhead projectors, digitally printed transparencies, and stained glass. Students had the opportunity to stage performative acts and installation-based work with found objects and props. Using digital cameras (both cell phone and SLR), students were tasked with capturing images and video from the collaborative project. The kaleidoscope lens can be used on cell phone cameras while documenting the installation.

During the final session, students chose and edited their photography and video from the workshop. In a class critique, students discussed this documentation and artwork, considering the best way to mediate and present such work.

How would these images and videos best reach an interested audience? Websites, social media platforms, printed translations, or screen based presentations? What happens to the objects and installation once the documentation is over? By considering these questions, students were exposed to thinking about how time-based and impermanent gestures can be communicated through art. Using the camera with mirror and stained glass prompted students to emphasize the role of light in both image capture technologies and the activation of physical space.
