About


Lens&... is a hub and overview of the Solo and Collaborative work of Adam Glatherine: Artist l Light Sculptor l Engineer.

My intention as an Artist is to share with others my utter delight and fascination with light, form and their interaction. As a Light Sculptor it's most important to me to get hands on, absorbed in the process and engaged with the materials; a process of mental flow, of thought through physicality. As Engineer my focus is to make it all work, effectively and efficiently.

My hope is that the results of these processes move people in some way; perhaps enlivening the mind, engaging the imagination and lifting the spirit.

My intention is that the products of my on-going exploration of light and form should function like a lens, enabling a two way focus and engagement between people and ideas.
