Whenever possible, representative or referential spaces are sought in relation to glass blowing and its tradition, in order to make visible these contexts and the question of the disappearance of the last glassmakers. As Roc Vernis Artigas, part of the glass family in Arenys de Munt and an artisan for engraving who lost his job due to the gradual disappearance of the tradition, says: “…the nostalgia for an art that is disappearing and that has been very important here in the part of Barcelona and in general in Catalonia, due to the sand, silicon and sulphates that exist in our region, that is why this high-quality glass was made at the time. And now it disappears, mainly due to globalization and real estate speculation. If we were a more intelligent country, the truth is that there would be many factories that would still be working with glass, especially the most artistic and artisanal part of glass…”.

In each context, the project adds a subtitle to its name that roots it with the place, but we are also interested in the representation of these creations in other contexts to experience their transformation.
