Glass vs. Ice
I am interested in the states of matter of glass, such as solid, semi-liquid, and liquid based on temperatures moving from cold to hot. I used a paper with ice to shape glass, and I kept turning molten glass until the glass was completely gone. Molten glass is hot, orange and transparent. Ice is cold, white and opaque. As the glass grew cold, static, and white opaque, the ice melted with heat, grew active as water, and became transparent. Visually, the two different materials resembled each other, but the qualities had become reversed. The ice was getting hotter and thinner. In the video, my hand appeared steady, but I felt hot physically and frightened by what I saw. It looked as though I was touching molten glass with my bare hand.
