{SUPERPOSITION} was a juried show of sculptural glass and glass related sculpture held in Seattle WA in June, 2011 concurrent with the Glass Art Society Conference.

Experimentation is an exercise in the virtues of uncertainty.

{superposition} connotes a moment at which uncertainty is so great that it is impossible to differentiate on state of being from another, and we are forced to assume that both are true. This egalitarian approach to existence is a powerful metaphor for the multiplicities of identities and genres inhabited by the works and artists in the show.
