Today I had the pleasure to meet Shirley Hersch, and hear her speak about her current installation, Clarity, at the Canberra Glassworks. I found it utterly mesmerising to watch her work lit up and rotating gracefully in the darkened space (the converted smokestack of the historic Kingston Powerhouse).
