In 2011 I began making work inspired by satellite imagery. I see these
images as a beautiful expansive view of the world. Some evoke an out of body
feeling similar to a kind of “spirit projection”. I can see myself floating over a
distant land. Other images, such as infrared, show a view of the world I cannot
see with my own eyes. For me, these images form a distance between myself
and the world that I see. They create a magical change, an awakening. It is our
home becoming something else. I am fascinated that raw data can be
assimilated to create such an otherworldly image. There is a sense of
hopefulness in this transformation as if you can change reality by seeing
differently. So much of technology seems dehumanizing, by using traditional
materials such as glass I hope to humanize these ubiquitous images and bring to
light how they shape our understanding of the world we live in.

Jennifer Bueno grew up in Seneca, South Carolina. She received her BFA from
Rhode Island School of Design, an MFA in Sculpture from Bard College, and an
MFA in Glass from Alfred University. Her work combines glass with elements
found in nature as a metaphor for otherworldliness. She is interested in the
intersection of worlds within the experience of our everyday lives. Jennifer’s work
has been exhibited at Canadian Clay and Glass (Waterloo, ON), Contemporary
Art Center (New Orleans, LA), and Tacoma Museum of Art (Tacoma, WA). She
has been a resident artist at Pilchuck Glass School, Penland School of Crafts,
and Corning Museum of Glass.
