It'd be cool if we could get a neon rectangle to hang on the wall, and people could take photos inside of it, like it would be the frame around them. Owen Schmit. Untitled (pink), 2007 Electroluminescent wire
Electroluminescent wire (or EL wire, as we like to call it on the streets) is a thin copper wire coated in a phosphor that gets all glow-y when a current runs through it. Ian, another great bearer of the name, wound several meters worth of EL wire around an actual tree branch to create this elven-like sculpture… way better than Christmas Tree.
