Toronto glass artist Sarah Hall is showcasing six recent projects—four in Canada and two in the United States, with exquisite photography for each installation—that incorporate solar-electric features with architectural glass. “For a thousand years, architectural glass has been an art of light, whether reflecting or transmitting it, letting it pass through white and whole or splintering it into the colours of the rainbow,” writes architecture critic John Bentley Mays. “In her recent work, however, acclaimed Toronto glass artist Sarah Hall has added something modern to the repertoire of glazing’s near-Infinite play with light: the power to transfigure sunshine into electricity.” (h/t to the Ottawa Renewable Energy Co-op for pointing us to this story)
