Keep it Glassy2自4月18日开幕之后，以其独特的设计理念，全新的空间创意设计获得了广泛的关注。原本封闭肃穆的空间，因为玻璃和光影的引入，有了透气和空灵的感觉。KIG2珍存过去、畅想未来的主题，让行走于四个不同展厅的观众加深了对时间的体验。作为一个专注于玻璃设计的展览，KIG2持续搜罗并汇聚国内外最具创新活力和独特价值理念的设计师，探索他们从玻璃中汲取灵感的多中方，以最让人耳目一新的方式和公众分享。
8月15日下午，我们特别邀请KIG2参展设计师，远道而来的土耳其设计师Bilge Nur Saltik为大家分享她的创作体验和心得。OP-jects，是Nur美丽的创作品。玻璃的反射和失真同样可以展现曼妙效果，把纺织印花和棱面玻璃结合起来，通过对颜色和几何形状的玩味，可以在玻璃器皿上创造出一种万花筒般的效果，每天都能给人焕然一新的观感。
Nur同样为我们带来将丝巾和玻璃扣组成的系列作品“Through the looking Glass”，这两个部分组合在一起，完美地满足了人类对窥探表层之下事物的渴望。丝巾扣折射我们的所见，显示织物和印花的细节，将图案分解成疯狂、不可预测的形状和颜色。

August 15, 2015
Passing through a hot summer, unknowingly it’s already the beginning of autumn. When the warm sunshine back to earth, how do you intend to spend a rare leisurely Saturday? Will you take a long lazy sleep, read a good book or have a rich feast like usual? Why don’t you come to the Shanghai Museum of Glass (SHMOG) and have a literary and artistic Saturday?
Listen to the Turkish designer to talk about Her own creative experience
Since the opening in April 18th, the Keep it Glassy 2 (SHMOG International Glass Creative Design Show “KIG2”) has received a wide range of attention relying on its unique design concept and the new space creative design. Because of the introduction of glass and light, originally closed solemn space obtained a kind of breathable and airy feeling. The theme of KIG2 “Treasure the past, think about the future” has deepened the audience’s experience of time in four different exhibition halls. As an exhibition focus in glass design, KIG2 continue gathering both domestic and foreign designers with the most innovative vitality and value of the unique concept; explore their kinds of inspiration from the glass, and share them with the public in the most refreshing way.
We specially invited KIG2 exhibition Turkish designer Bilge Nur Saltik to share her creation experience and knowledge in August 15. “OP-jects” is one piece of Nur’s beautiful work. It combines textile printing with prismatic glass, uses reflection and distortion effect of glass to create colorful geometric figure. Therefore, the final work shows a kaleidoscopic effect, and every day it can give a whole new impression.
Nur also brought us a series of works “through the looking glass” that combine the scarves and glass. Through different combinations of the two parts, it is perfect to meet the human desire to pry beneath the surface of things. Scarf buckle reflect what we see and display the details of fabric and printing, decompose the patterns into crazy and unpredictable shapes and colors.
“OP-LIGHT” and “OP-VASE” are the new projects that Nur has recently creating. Through careful pondering on glass and objects, she shows us the incomparable beauty of daily necessities. It turns out that ordinary glass objects can make life more beautiful.
Gentle Guqin, Distant Xiao
After enjoyed the beautiful artworks and the wondrous creativity of its designer, let us begin a melodious evening. It was a pleasant time, the moonlight fell and a little breeze passed softly. SHMOG held a “Qin-Xiao Ensemble” concert in new conceptual Ai-Lu Rainbow Hall which opened in this May. In the night, the light of the rainbow hall appears glitterier.
The Xiao song “Moonlight on the Spring River” was a prelude to the whole show. With the music accompanied by breeze coming, and drifting away, the audiences’ restless mind during the day began to calm and peace. In the next songs, “Yang Guan” expressed poet Wang Wei’s miss and care to his old friend, “Jiu Kuang” described poet Ruan Ji’s unrestrained and frivolous mind, “Yi Gu Ren” conveyed the author’s deep feeling of longing to his friend, and “Ze Pan Ming” describes poet Qu Yuan’s depression and grief to his mother land “Chu”. When this four song finished, one of the audiences, a Guqin Lover, quite inspired by the beautiful music, and he presented a ditty “Guan Shan Yue” with all the joy. The last song is Qin-Xiao ensemble “Yu Qiao Wen Da”. It has deep meaning. In the music audiences viewed towering mountains; heard the gurgling streams, and the talk between fishermen and woodcutters. A beautiful picture just flowed in the fingers of the players.
Sitting quietly in the rainbow hall, surrounded by the melody, we shared together. It was a wonderful Saturday night at SHMOG.
