It is accepted that as technology advances, the ways in which we perceive, understand, and influence the world around us are changing. As more aspects of human experience are filtered through some kind of electronic manipulation, actual experience becomes more entwined with the virtual. In parallel, the concept of craftsmanship itself is also transforming; skill in using digital media is becoming comparable to skill in manipulating molten glass or other materials. Liam Reeves uses the tradition, technique and language of glassblowing as a lens through which to explore the effect technological advance has on the way in which we interface with objects and our environment.
