Exploring the combination of 3D form and digital media to create structure and surface, Sync is an installation that references glass as a hybrid of screen and sculpture. Ms. Zafar was inspired by Josepha Gasch-Muche piece 7.3.2011, in particular how Gasch utilizes the shattered glass of LCD screens to create a form that simultaneously generates feelings of enamour and apprehension.
In response, Ms. Zafar made her own fragments by shearing into molten glass. Compiling the many shards to build form, a projection is cast onto the piece, breathing life back into the glass that was once moving. Through the use of audio detection, the projection reacts to the viewer, creating an experience through of convergence and divergence through its animation. Sync calls attention to notions of the singular and the conglomerate and by extension ourselves and the universe at large.
