Neon Wave Sculpture
Mixed-media installation

with Theo Botschuijver

Produced for Koopvardersplantsoen, Amsterdam Noord, Netherlands.


The Neon Wave Sculpture is an urban light sculpture that is interactively controlled by varying wind speeds. Mounted on the exterior wall of an apartment building, it is constituted by 48 sine-curved neon tubes. The light level in each tube can be electronically modulated so that an animated movement of waveforms appear to travel across the sculpture. Eight different patterns are interactively determined by the actual wind speed conditions metered on the roof of the building - these wave patterns relate directly and metaphorically to wind speeds ranging from calm to storm.
