Josiah McElheny (born 1966) produces dazzling fabricated glass objects that address such topics as the nature of perception, the narratives of modernism and the origin of the universe. Since 2007 he has produced a series of sculptures and a film inspired by “The Light Club of Batavia,” a 1912 short story by German Expressionist writer Paul Scheerbart. This publication focuses on McElheny’s Light Club works, which investigate the role of glass in utopian ideas about modernist architecture.
