Hacker Creations

Melissa Glick finds beauty in unexpected places. As a "hacker" she takes things apart and re-purposes them in cool new ways. She transforms "e-waste"- discarded electronics and outdated computer components into dynamic compositions within assemblage, jewelry, mosaics and clocks. She creates a "conversation" between 2D text and images and 3D forms by incorporating the glut of obsolete technology with artifacts from her personal life. Her work grapples with the environmental impact of our technological lifestyle and our emotional attachments to "things" that represent and validate who we are. In a new series titled, Steampunk Tiles (SPUNKS), Melissa is producing 5-7 assemblages on a variation of her deconstructed conversation theme. Melissa has a Masters in Art Education from Mass College of Art and a BA from SUNY Purchase and has run educational programs at the Cambridge Multicultural Arts Center, Boston Ballet, Museum of Fine Arts, Watertown Arsenal Center for the Arts, Parts & Crafts and at various community events. melissasglick.com
