This Artist Makes Portraits By Precisely Breaking Glass with a Hammer

With slight, precise, carefully-timed taps of his hammer, Simon Berger cracks glass so that the fracture lines depict vibrant faces. Five years into his exploration of this medium, Berger has already astonished exhibition visitors with the beauty of shattered glass. He described to My Modern Met how his first experiments lead to joy through a new type of art:

I was immediately enthusiastic about this possibility because I was always striving to find a new form of representation. I like creating beautiful things through destruction.

In this video from last year, you can see Berger at work creating one of his enormous glass portraits.
