Sini Majuri. Icebergs

Sini Majuri

Description

Sini Majuri’s glass installation Icebergs is a visual poem about Nordic region. By connecting glass mountains, it is possible to build mountain ranges, mental landscapes made of glass. The series is inspired by the iconic Vatnajökull in Iceland. Textures, colors and the athmosphere of the glass pieces resonate the unparalleled scenery of the icy mountains. The main philosophy behind the pieces is to reflect the climate change. The installation has been exhibited in Scandinavian Pavilion of The Interior Lifestyle Tokyo Japan 2017, Designboom Pavillion in Toronto Interior Design Show 2018 and in Norden exhibition in Harbourfront Centre Toronto 2019. Iceberg is a sculpture that can be arranged into a landscape like installations. The surface of each object is always unique – every iceberg has it’s own soul. When hot lava like-glass is touched with icy cold metal, it ripples and creates a wavy texture. It is in a way a fingerprint of the glass that can not be reproduced. I wanted the ice peaks to have multiple surface textures that also create interesting optic illusions and reflections. When light is gleaming trough the glass, shadow looks like water.
