Ben Johnson: Skip Time
Skip Time is the culmination of glass artist Ben Johnson’s work as the Indianapolis Art Center’s 2017 Skip McKinney Faculty of the Year Award winner. “It’s a tour through spacetime that came about because of the influence of people who have made this possible,” states Johnson. Comprised entirely of blown glass vessels illuminated from within, Skip Time maps an immersive nod to our solar system complete with floor sculptures, hanging works depicting the lunar phases, and constellations projected from the ceiling.
