New commission Installation

What Matters

Shuster & Moseley (UK)


Thousands of pieces of glass suspended high like a shattered star.

What Matters consisted of two immersive light and glass installation. Inside St Oswald’s Church, thousands of hand-blown glass pieces depicted the birth of light in the universe.

In the churchyard, pieces appeared to have joined to form glass bubbles. They hovered in clusters, appearing to be suspended in space amongst the trees.

A collaboration between the Institute for Computational Cosmology, Durham University, students at the University of Sunderland and the Sunderland Glass Centre.
