Julianne Swartz

Julianne Swartz is a New York-based artist who creates site-specific installations that engage visitors using sound, magnification, and optics. Using a mix of both high and low-tech materials such as PVC tubing, mirrors, and strategically placed speakers, Swartz creates situations that invite visitors to seek out and experience the work firsthand.  During her visit to RISD Glass, she worked with students in the Hot Shop to embed copper wiring into experimental glass and ceramic forms to create sound-transmitting devices.
