About the Maker:
Juniper Maffescioni is an emerging glass artist and recent Honours graduate of the ANU SOA&D Glass Workshop, working across themes of vision, perception, colour, and light, through the lens of the postdigital.
Driven by insatiable curiosity, Maffescioni investigates the function and behaviour of physical materials, mathematical constructs, and the relationships between them. She works to comprehend things by seeing, questioning, and making. Maffescioni uses these methods to manifest objects she wishes to see exist.
In her current investigation of light, colour, and vision, Maffescioni has created a method of form finding to mathematically describe the experience of seeing existing glass art. This is accomplished through cross-disciplinary practices moving amidst virtual and physical realms to manifest data objects in glass.
Through her work, Maffescioni wants people to observe and understand the world as she does. Analogous to performing scientific studies and publishing results, Maffescioni searches for profundity and detail in complex concepts and presents aesthetic objects as proof.
Maffescioni appreciates the intricate pattern and intense colour of glass art and finds comfort through the experience of seeing and creating complex compositions in glass. A long-standing grasp of complex mathematical constructs has become the language by which Maffescioni now synthesizes and fulfills these personal connections to glassmaking.
Her current body of work connects representations of visual information, human perception, and colourful glass. This work questions philosophical implications of the transformation of subjective visual pleasure through an objective analytical process. It also considers discrepancies in data loss and approximation due to algorithmic processes.
