Drawing in Glass: Shahzia Sikander at Princeton University

Get a behind-the-scenes view into the making of two spectacular, site-specific works by the internationally acclaimed artist Shahzia Sikander that were unveiled at Princeton in April 2017.

Soaring above the forum of the Julis Romo Rabinowitz Building—the new home for the Department of Economics—is the site of Quintuplet Effect, where layered images of flight, descent, material economies, and spiritual transcendence invite contemplation and conversation. Nearby, as one climbs the stairs in the Louis A. Simpson International Building, a shimmering, sixty-six-foot-high glass and ceramic scroll entitled Ecstasy as Sublime, Heart as Vector takes visitors on a journey from the mortal bonds of humanity to the realm of abstraction.
