How to find the unsought finding

5th November 2014

An emerging trend in materials research seems to be exploring and exhausting a mono material, pushing its boundaries through serendipitous experimentation resulting in new and exciting outcomes.

One such designer exploring the extremes of glass is Anne Büscher, a recent graduate from Maastricht Academy of Fine Arts and Design.

Looking to reveal the unseen in glass, her work explores glass in its many forms from its pure ingredient state of sand and dust through to glass, as we know it.

Her project ‘How to find the unsought findings’ is an open-end art project that celebrates her experiments around glass. Collated in a series of seven vitrines, she has catalogued serendipitous experimentations and findings that have been edited and selected for their beauty, playful experimentation and uniqueness.

Designed to reveal the unseen, her journey is not in finding the final product, but rather is simply about finding the anomalies or unexpected findings along the way.

A ‘lexicon’ explaining the terms/facts that are of central importance accompanies each object, material or experiment. With a nod to traditional cataloguing, Büscher's takes a more poetic approach driven by aesthetics rather than dry hard facts.
