NeON and on

I've been a fan of Paul Cocksedge's work since I first clapped eyes on the inspired NeON light.
Each glass vessel is filled with gas which is then charged with an electric current, creating hanging droplets of pure, beautiful colour.
The design for NeON was developed in 2003 but still feels fresh today. I had tried to use these in a bar installation but was told they too closely resembled a mans rubber friend! I'd honestly not seen that myself, but I guess, as in art, we all have our own interpretation!
One of his latest installations for The Wellcome Trust building in London has passers by literally stopping in their tracks and shows Cocksedge is pushing the extremes of lighting design once again.
