safety glass, integrity film, motion sensor, steel and aluminum
Glass is a material intimately connected with modernity. Used for its overview and insight, it symbolizes bot secularized consciousness, scientific rationality and democratic values. But glass is also invisible and impenetrable, at the same time a barrier as no barrier at all. In times where traditional power structures have withered, where capital moves freely across borders while bodies are monitored and controlled, glass also embodies the qualities of a power that is harder to see materially and politically; a power fleeting as mist.
