Ngaio Fitzpatrick is an Australian interdisciplinary artist who works across genres as architectural intervention, site-specific installation and video. She primarily uses industrial glass in her work, which has a strong focus on the polarizing problems climate change causes. She uses staging to capture the viewer and often incorporates weather phenomena as an instrument in her expression. Her background in environmentally sustainable architecture is evident in her artistic work. She is particularly concerned with ways art can be used to convey the science of climate change in a Post-Truth world. Ngaio currently resides in Berlin as the recipient of the Australia Endeavor Fellowship 2018. https://ngaiofitzpatrick.com/
Carissa Baktay is a sculptor from Canada who lives in Iceland. She works sculpturally in glass and mixed materials such as clay, porcelain, plaster and wax. She recently graduated from VICARTE in Lisbon, Portugal with a Master of Glass Art and Science, and has had two solo exhibitions at the National Museum of Natural History and Sciences in Lisbon, Portugal. During her stay in S12, she will explore an experimental process that begins with 3D drawings that are laser-cut in wood. The models are covered with thin glass strings that melt over the molds in a kiln. Her work and method are experimental and strain the boundaries of traditional glassmaking techniques. http://www.carissabaktay.com
