Duration - 43 days
Location - FOCI - Minnesota Center for Glass Arts, Minneapolis

Synaptic Connections is an experimental and interactive installation incorporating blown glass and neon sculpture.

Jo Andersson was born in Walnut Creek, California in 1988. She began blowing glass when she was 19 at The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. Shortly after completing her bachelors in fine art with an emphasis in glass she moved to Seattle, Washington to pursue glass opportunities. Jo graduated from Konstfack in Stockholm, Sweden with her masters in CRAFT! Ceramics and glass in the spring of 2020. In 2021 she received the prestigious Marianne and Sigvard Bernadotte scholarship in design. Andersson is interested in how she can use the material glass in relation to light to create objects and environments which help to inspire presence and a sense of comfort within the viewer.
