Amazing Optical Box by Mary Bauermeister
Bauermeister creating a dazzling array of optical works; based on glass, with applied materials including prisms, stones and carved forms. Surfaces would then be treated to obsessive inscriptions, and metapshysical musings. In this example 4 panes are encased in an aluminum housing, heavily inscribed with attahced stones and painted cones. Bauermeister is in the collections of MOMA, The Whitney, Metropolitan Museum of Art, along with other important institutions.
