"V xV2"

The smart phone has a place right at the centre of our interconnected existence. For now they are just about the only thing that links us to our friends, business and general information about the world. But at the heart of it all, they run on simple binary of zeros and ones, circles and lines: the basic blocks of all life. I wanted to make one the subject of my glass work because they are aesthetically beautiful and tactile objects. I engraved around the seed bubbles to show how everything is connected, but also, that computers are vulnerable to viruses as well.
