The Lucent Parlor: Damask Wallpaper

A reinterpretation of a Damask pattern was created for the entrance to the General’s Parlor. The wallpaper looks to the era of the glass molds used to create the sconces in the dining area and incorporates video stills of glowing molten glass being drizzled on a crystal chandelier. It plays off the translucency, light, and shadows cast by the sconces in the following space and sets the tone for the experience of the Parlor.

Meet the Creator

"Aaron Pexa is an American multi-media artist and architect whose work manifests curiosity and a sense of bewilderment through projection, optics, and appropriated antique objects to reframe and fracture environments.

Pexa received his MFA in Glass from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2014. Prior to studying glass at RISD, Pexa worked as an architect and urban designer in London and New Orleans. In the summer of 2014, he received a travel grant from the RISD to research glassmaking techniques along Finland’s Glass Trail, and most recently was awarded a Chinese government scholarship at the China Academy of Art in Hangzhou to study Mandarin and promote cross-cultural exchange."
