Light Art

Bird Cage

This Project was conceived by the artist Su-Mei Tse for a financial Banking Centre as the main public art piece. It shows essentially a 5.5 m x 3.2 m bird cage constructed of 18 vertical composite members made of 2 neon tubes encased within an polycarbonate covering. This gives the appearance of opacity to the light source. The project makes use of a total of 270 m of neon tubing.
