Moving It! Approaches to Kinetic Neon

June 25th - June 29th
Michael Flechtner |

We will be exploring various approaches to making neon move! Demonstrations on neon tube bending will lead to student practice time and project development for kinetic and/or wearable neon sculptures. Demonstrations and discussions will include information on illusion, scale, animators, power transmission, interference mitigation, insulation, connections, dimming, timers, switches, interfaces, mobility, and whatever else you might want to inquire about! Open to all interested in bringing their neon to the next level!
