Artist Chuck Miller lights Dream Window 18  in the original pattern & sequence using Cool Neon EL wire.

We are so honored that Chuck Miller lights his art work with Cool Neon Wire.  Chuck is an artist who takes antique windows, pops out the existing glass and replaces it with stained glass, art glass and Miller’s own original photography.  He calls his creation Dream Window.  Dream Window 18 is considered his most technically complicated but emotionally satisfying work to date.  His emotional attachment comes from the many times he admired this sign as a boy in Albany NY’s historic Capital District.  Much of the Capitol District’s iconic architecture was torn down over time and metal from many of the unique neon signs, sold for scrap.  Dream Window 18 uses Cool Neon wire to light his photo in the same pattern and rhythm as the original sign did for generations.  You can read the full article along with video of the finished work, here.

The Cool Neon products he used to light is work are:

Great work Chuck! We love the way you use multimedia to create something new while paying homage to the past.
