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.

drone courtshipAtelier D. Schlaepfer and Flyability made a two minute movie, featuring the magical encounter between two flying robots, or drone courtship. They used the world’s first drones capable of interacting with their environment and developed lighting and choreography to deliver a unique piece at the intersection of high-technology and art.
They used Cool Neon Hella Phat 5.0mm Wire. We loved this video and hope you will too, it is graceful and adept all at the same time.

To view the video on their website please click HERE.  We loved the backstage photos, you can see those HERE.
Thanks so much for sending us the video, we love sharing your work.
