Breaking the Silence is a site-specific glass installation created by Los Angeles based Japanese glass artist, Kazuki Takizawa. The installation was installed at STARworks Glass Lab in Star, North Carolina in 2015. The performance included water system that slowly sprinkled droplets of water into hundreds of off- centered glass vessels that eventually tipped over and fell. This installation was created to increase awareness on suicide.
