(room ADA = 10016)

Evoke the linearity of Neon-Signs! Create linear compositions in 2D or 3D!

1. Create your own linear graphic / typographic / design pattern! (It can be figurative and non-figurative as well.)

2. Interpret one of the well-known art pieces in a linear way it can be a famous drawing, painting, sculpture, or even non-visual figure. Use plastic covered metal wire or plastic tube reinforced by steel wire and bend them into 2D or 3D shapes (scale is free). Light your creations with UV Light in a dark room (the parts you don’t want to be visible, paint them black). Paint your compositions by using UV-reflective paint. (White, yellow, green, red, blue). You can create shapes that have different interpretations from different directions. (E.g. rabbit from one side, and wolf from the other.) The exhibition of your linear creations is set in a dark room, and the visitors are surrounded by UV-illuminated 2D and 3D figures in the dark space!
