National Art Glass Centre


Glass Percussion was a site specific installation and performance for development and presentation at the National Art Glass Centre, Wagga Wagga Art Gallery, NSW. The project was an initiative directed by glass artist Elaine Miles and percussionist/composer Eugene Ughetti, featuring up to 1000 hand blown glass objects creating an innovative sound and light installation. Elaine is an installation artist, notable for creating large scale installations that incorporate glass, sound and lighting, inspired by contemporary and conceptual art; percussionist and composer Eugene Ughetti makes a significant contribution to experimental and contemporary new music. Both artists have extensive experience, nationally and internationally, in presenting solo and collaborative exhibitions and performances.
