What is neon? Where did this form of signage come from? Why does the phenomenon of neon light require glass and electricity? What else is it used for?
This evening lecture and demonstration with the Brooklyn Brainery will cover the origins, technical information, and artistic invention of neon. Participants will learn about how neon was developed, how different colors are derived, the use of electrodes, and how artists are using this dynamic process today. A demonstration in neon techniques will cover both traditional bends and more experimental forms.
