Neon art

"Neon 206 is a continuation of Chihuly's explorarations in neon. The coloured tubes seem to float, multiplying in number. The installation consists of factory-made glass tubes that have been heated and bent into angular forms which are filled with neon and argon gasses and charged with electricity." (museum info)

Neon 206 is part of the current exhibition "Chihuly" in the Groninger Museum.

Chinaware Piano

Dutch artist Jelle Mastenbroek combined a porcelain cabinet and a piano, and so created an object for both the eyes and ears. After pushing the button (there in the bottom left corner of the photo) the piano started playing automatically, producing a sound resembling a happy (though maybe somewhat primitive) carillon. It was pretty loud as well so I expected one of the plates to break any minute. But obviously that didn't happen haha :)
Mastenbroek graduated in 2012 from the Design Academy Eindhoven in the discipline Man and Well-Being. This installation was made especially for this exhibition in The Princessehof Nat. Museum of Ceramics.
