Project Type: Light Fixtures
Acquired by: San Francisco MoMA + Private Collections
Neon tubes cast in resin, using discarded vacuum form packaging as the mold, form the basis for a series of atmospheric light fixtures. The linear tubes penetrate and illuminate the resin, presenting the cast forms of each fixture as a unique object. Developed as a series, the neon tubes register a barcode-like pattern of light within the random forms. Details of each object are shown in positive relief against the resin. The LITE-SCAPES series was created especially for the Henry Urbach Architecture’s end-of-year show in 2001. The objects are currently in the permanent collection of SFMOMA, as well as owned by private collectors such as Fred Hochberg and Tom Healy, Sherri Wolf, and others.
