Video now plays on a similar screen outside the dome “I try to bare everything — the guts of my materials and my inner thoughts — in deceptively simple narrative videos set into specimen jars…These works are phylacteries of sorts, the transparent reliquaries in which bits of saints’ bones or hair — relics — are displayed….My relics are temporal, sounds and moving images formally enshrined, encapsulating experiences like cultural specimens. And perhaps, to the contemporary soul, they are no less reliquaries than those containing the bones of a saint.” –Tim Tate Tim Tate is co-founder of the Washington Glass School and Studio.
