Artway Chartres

Artway Chartres is a collective formed by glass enthusiasts. It uses this incredible material in its monument projections, seeking the alchemy between glass and light. Using a magic lantern, the forerunner to the slide projector, to cast images from engraved or painted glass plates, they flood monuments with their unique "glass light". This technical procedure represents a return to the roots of light, creating a real affiliation with the arts and crafts movement.
