This film documents Jonathan Clarren’s process in producing the sculpture The Heart See’s More Than The Eye.

This piece was conceptually developed in 2012 and produced and installed in 2013.
Art Skool film made with Mike Szabo, Ido Mor, Christian Delfilippio, Mike Horn and others. Originally intended to capture 100 feet of glass shattering downward, due to locations a horizontal presentation was found after sighting an abandoned coal storage area in an abandoned factory. At the time of the film I was making other projects that involved glass boxes made of found windows, So old box windows were used and connected with one single rope that was holding the boxes together until burned.
