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
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-
