Norwood Viviano

WSKG is proud to partner with the Corning Museum of Glass in a series of arts shorts featuring their past resident artists. This segment takes a look at Norwood Viviano. Norwood Viviano uses digital 3D modeling and printing technology in combination with the casting process to create his sculptural works. Two recent bodies of works, Cities: Departure and Deviation and Kohler Pile, address power dynamics between industry and the surrounding communities that are dependent on it. Cities: Departure and Deviation, an installation comprised of 24 blown-glass forms, maps the relationship between industrial growth and decline relative to population expansion and contraction of major cities in the United States.
