Architecture college exhibits neon artwork by Wanda Winkler Battalion Reporter “Energy Sculpture,” a neon art form, is on exhibit at the Col lege of Architecture and En vironmental Design’s Langford Architecture Center gallery through Saturday. The neon light sculptures, designed by artists Larry Flnkin- ger and Clark Harrah.are being displayed before they are sent to the new Marshall Field’s in Houston. Flukinger said that af ter ex perimenting with neon art for many years, he and Harrah be gan making neon sculptures on a family farm in Hempstead. “Our neon sculptures are making statements about beauty and excitement,” he said. The artwork involves color relationships, shapes and the in tensity of light. Flukinger said release of gases in the vertical glass tubes produces the sculptures’ light. Delicate color combinations of red and orange, green and blue, and purple and pink are determined by the gas used, the tube’s inner coating, and the col or of the glass, he said. Harrah said that a continuous change in color occurs when the gases mix in the tubes. Since the tubes are close together, a per son can watch the interaction of light take place. If the observer changes his angle of view, the colors and light patterns seen in the sculpture also will change. Although the light intensity of each tube may vary, Flukin- MSC Recreation Presents ACU-I Qualifying BILLIARDS TOURNAMENT SAT, FEB 5 lO A.M.
