Professor Mary Drach McInnes GAS lecture abstract
"Thinking Through Glass Digitally"
My video lecture will address the theory and practice of artist website production. I will introduce some of the key issues of viewing glass art digitally and then offer a pragmatic guide to website construction. In the initial section, I will draw on recent scholarship in the emerging and lively field of photography and sculpture. Further, I will showcase current writing on digital culture and ways artists may broaden how we look at images on their websites. In the subsequent section, I will offer a tutorial on website construction, setting up a series of design and writing parameters that will help artists build and manage their digital presence. “Thinking Through Glass Digitally” will offer both a critical framework and specific criteria for glass artists to become stronger online advocates of their studio practice.
