Singing Glass is a light-responsive sound installation which uses a shop window in Dundee’s city centre as a resonating speaker. The piece explores a curious group of words in the English language that all begin with the letters ‘gl’. If you think about the meaning of each of these words you may notice they all have something to do with light or vision. As you walk by the shop, the window sings combinations of these ‘gl’ words to you. The words you hear change depending on how light it is.
Singing Glass is the second iteration of Sing the Gloaming. For more information visit: singthegloaming.surfacepressure.net
