One Scene 1.png

Dotting the stone white wall of the Dublin Community Recreation Center, are a series of large bronze leaves. Each is delicate and poised, as if floating down from the branches of a magnificent bronze tree. From each leaf, a cascade of glass reaches for the waters edge, spilling over the edges of the leaf. "One Scene" is paradoxically powerful and fragile in its natural. frail form and sparse composition.

Daisuke Shintani is a Japanese artist, born and raised in Hiroshima, Japan. He is interested in using glass "as a recording machine" by pouring it, molten, over objects and seeing as it quickly solidifies and perfectly captures the state of anything in contact with its surface. Pieces, such as One Scene, have the leaves installed ahead of time. Shintani then comes and pours a stream of molten glass on them and lets the glass create a cascading waterfall that he then freezes in time and space.
