According to Wikipedia, smart glass "refers to electrically charged switchable glass or glazing which changes light transmission properties when voltage is applied . . . When activated, the glass changes from transparent to translucent, partially blocking light while maintaining a clear view through the glass." A video example of smart glass is included . . .
The project will be composed of three panels, each with a series of text. The text will provide information on subjects including, but not limited to, privacy, anonymity, and free speech. Each panel will have a layer of smart glass over it. Ideally, the viewer of the pieces will be able to switch the smart glass on or off. Thus, the viewer can choose whether they want to read the information or render it "private."
If granted, the funding for the project will mainly go towards ordering the smart glass, having it made, and having it shipped. The funding will also be used towards the making of the panels and the placement of the text onto the panels.
